This is on a Lawn I mow but ppl does it (DOES NOT) groom the beds or the tree rings
I told customer If I did the beds The grooming is part of the bid I gave them But other guy must be still way cheaper then me
The customer hires me to groom the beds bad thing is The new mulch is already there To me it looks bad after I groom it but customer is ok with it

I groom with my Turf Teq Here few pics

wow...you need to find some better clients.... I wouldn't want people to see me edging that and think those are my standards. Call me crazy or what ever but if it makes me look bad I don't do the project!

Well I installed the lawn I mow it 5 acres trim shrubs/trees Lawn treatments just never did the mulch
grooming was around $200 for less then 2 hrs of work
They pay well and on time
So about $1,200 each month So they ask I did it What would you do

I would've went in with a rake and pulled the mulch back, edged, graded soil, pulled mulch back and then charged $300, but that's just me. I couldn't leave a job looking like that.

You can only tell them so much, BTW what kind of mulch is that, looks like they used something off the back of a tree chipper truck?
