I am going to bid on a new Auto Zone store lawn care svc and would like to know if anyone else has a Comm. account with some what the same items (ie. mowing, edging, mulch, shrub trimming etc.) I've got all the info from the Landscaping Forming, because when they are through installing everything he said that his out of it. So he was very helpfully with all the figures. I just need a little help with parking lot blowing/cleaning.

Hi AC

If you have the cutting & trimming services covered, I would bid it something like this for the parking lot:
2x2x0.5x your hourly rate= 2 men 2 backpack blowers 30min each @ your hourly rate per man (providing you have 2 good blowers and fast walkers) this should be more than enough time, but remember a task that takes you a certin amount of time doesnt mean someone else may take longer for the same task.

Good Luck
Tim
