    let me repeat this
    neither one is going to take more than 30 minutes
    multiply times your hourly rate

    $200 each is $400 per hour.

    If its both on the same invoice, why sell yourself short.
    Yes, it could possibly be 30 minutes to 1 hour for a "per push"$200.00; are you getting the clean-up after?
    then I would price differently(jmo)
    looks about 30k sqft to be treated (sand/salt mix) how bout maybe $200.00; not sure if your customer is requesting straight sand.

    they are separate properties....the plowing may only be 30-45 min but there's a good ~45 min of shoveling as well for each. Salt walkways and straight sand the lots included.
