Dear Landscaping Professional,

We are seeking proposals to complete the landscaping of our recently finished education wing and residential project.  We are looking to have the same company install the landscaping for both aspects of the project.

Below you will find the details we have at this time.  Since our specialty is not landscaping, we are relying on the advice of the company we choose to help us determine the best materials for our environment and application.

We will be hosting an informational meeting on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at 2:00 pm at Our Lady of Consolation Church.  Please park in the South parking lot and enter through the parish office.

All interested companies must be present in order to qualify to bid this project.  Please bring any questions you may have in order to provide an estimate for our project, or you may submit your questions online prior to the meeting.  All questions will be addressed during this meeting.

We look forward to meeting you on March 24 at 2:00pm.

God Bless,
“Rooted in Christ, Growing to Serve” Building Committee

Proposal Details

Landscaping at new education wing: 4864 Eleven Mile Rd NE, Rockford, MI 49341
Landscaping at new residence: 4939 Eleven Mile Rd NE, Rockford, MI 49341

Community Planting:
As part of your proposal you must include two (2) community planning opportunities.  These opportunities can consist of planting annuals or other plants, or spreading mulch, etc.  One shall be in the evening of a weekday (6:30-8:00 pm) and the second shall be on a weekend (Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon).  Both dates will be schedule based on availability of landscaper and parish schedule.  Parish will provide promotions and hospitality during these events.  Landscaper is responsible for overseeing and directing the work completed.

Commencement of Work:
Work may commence as soon as contract is awarded, depending on weather.  Coordinator will be necessary with school hours for education wing.  The residence has very few “non-work” time needed which will be discussed with landscaper.

Landscaper will provide a reasonable timeline for project based on the scope of work defined.

Final selection of plants will be reviewed by building committee and grounds ministry leadership.
