Dear Mr. Reyes:

I am following up on the Baobab Landscaping service proposal I forwarded on 22 April. –[1]–. Our company is one of the best in Barbados, and we would like to add you to our list of satisfied customers. Our clients include many local businesses like yours, among them hotels, restaurants, and banks. –[2]–. In case you overlooked the original proposal, I am attaching it again here.

The proposal is based on the service you inquired about, namely the maintenance of the grounds around Hamwell Tennis Courts once a week. –[3]–. Should you wish more extensive work, such as replacing trees, additional fees would apply.

–[4]–. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope our company will have the opportunity to be ofservice to you in the near future.
