We hate doing walkways. They take the same amount of time as the driveway but people are unwilling to pay double the driveway price. I've seen competitors flyers ranging from $184.00 to $239.00 per season for double driveway but I've never seen competitors prices for walkways. What would a fair price be for average walkway per season??? $50 extra per season.

What are you using to do walkways? They shouldn't take as long as the drive unless it's a corner lot or you're using shovels. I price all res. on the entire package; drive, walkways, steps, front porch & any extras requested.

We have 2 toro single stage snowblowers for the walkways but we don't like using them in the middle of the night because of the noise. If there is only a couple of inches of snow sometimes it is not worth taking them off the truck. Most of the time one person back drags the driveway with the truck and the other one uses the shovel and usally we end up finishing around the same time.

I have 7 apartment complexes that I plow. Now in my case here in the St. Louis area, we sometimes don't get very much snow, so I bid accordingly. In my case I have bid anywhere from .40 cents a foot to .70 cents per foot. I get anywhere from $80.00 to $160.00 per building. I use a John Deere single stager for this and then I use a Scotts drop spreader for de-icing. This method works great. Although I do have to go over most walks twice because of the width, but thats OK because I just go all the way to the end of the walk and then catch the other side on the way back. Most guys around here don't even mess with sidewalks. This leaves me with the opprotunity to make a bundle. I make more on walkways than the lots. It is time cosuming though. You almost have to have a helper if your going to do very many feet of walks. Hope this helps.
