    If you had to come up with a price for sidewalks charging per ft.for:
    Shoveling entrances,plowing sidewalks (atv) and salt (walk behind spreader) 2 men 3500 ft of sidewalk.16 bags of salt.Is there such a think as charging per ft? and what do you think it would be?

    2 men w/ 2hr minimum each =$140.00
    800#'s de-icing = $240.00
    Total = $340.00 per service

    Charge extra for ATV if needed. But that's about where I'd be at.

    Depending on area and size. I think a comfortable range is:
    Clear walks "1 trigger Per 1000 sf $25-$40, $35 Min. Over 6" $50-$75
    De-icer Landscape Choice $25.00 - $40.00 per 1000.

    I would think size of business, area of in country, other factors would affect this. In Western P.A we usually get a good bit of light snow accumulations.
