how do you go about measuring for a job like this? all the mulching I do is so irregular........ its tough to get a number close to the actual yardage you're going to need....

sq ft of beds divided by 216 for 2.5 in thick. That is to start with. This year was 5 yds less than last. Due to shrub growth and mulch still in beds.

The pink shrubs are called dianthus. They are perennials that bloom between April and May.

Do you maintain the lawn regularly or was it just for the mulch? Looks good!

I'll answer for prez;

we have the maint. contract on this yard all year, along with about 26 other ones in this neighborhood alone. (not sure the exact number, I run the installation side of the business) But last I heard, the year-round contracts were somewhere between 70-75, and no partial year contracts.

And lawnboy, we did not do the installation on this particular yard. We are fixing to replace a tree there though with most likely a oisami maple. :canadaflag:

Just curious. WHat is the mowing height and what type of grass is that? I have seen a few yards that are nice and low like that but don't know the mowing height.

thanks, rob

I understand you're providing the service only but from a HO's POV, that is totally unrealistic and almost absurd over landscaped yard.

why's that? That yard could easily be maintained by a homeowner who cared about their yard. There is absolutely NO backyard, just a brick wall around the back with a pool. This is the smaller "patio" style homes in this part of the neighborhood, but in this neighborhood the HO's have the money to have the best landscaping installed and maintained by the best companies. Thats what they get. Price.........no question.

I said from a "HO's perspective..." - no way that can be maintained... that's why they hire the pros.

I find that hard to believe. Was there nothing else needed like bed lines, trimming shrubs, cleaning leaves or anything out of the beds?

Myself and 2 other guys couldnt possibly do that in 2 hours even if we were on a full our run and it was just dump and spread.

BTW that does look very nice. Good work guys!

One guy should be able to spread 2 yards of mulch an hr... 3 guys.. 6 yards an hr..12 yards in 2 hours. I did 6 yards in an hr with two helpers the other day an i was talkin to the homeowner for 15 min

Wow, good work.

Everything just sticks out so much better. Looks much much better, I love black mulch thats what I use and tell people to use and some look at me like im crazy because they say it looks like dirt.....

But it sure makes things out to look much better with some color and plants, thats for sure.
