View Full Version : Philly Area?

Located in SE PA just starting out.
There are alot of us here. I happen to be from the lower Southeast PA. Read all about pricing and steer clear from people trying to rake the new guy. Keep your prices and professional work at a standard and you will do well.

thanks, been looking at the posts for a while. speaking to a few guys locally. trying to figure out my niche. I know I cant beat the local migrants but with the growth we're having in chester county I think I can find the right customers ( looking for no more than 10)

I am just starting out here. I know Nutrasoils, Inc. I get my shroom dirt and Ickbin from them and the Jersey guys who sell the Ickbin (Ickbin- secret word for mulch) I am just outside of West Grove. What kind of pricing are your guys getting in these parts? I pretty much go on time spent at site and multiply it by my dollar needs.
Just trying to make a living. There's enough grass for all of us if we top dress with mushroom soil (cured and killed that is).

welcome to the business millrace
Bushogging is good money in your area---no weedwhacking!
For lawn maintenence you want to get as close to chester county as possible
Those lawns in Chester County are nice, flat and wide open.
Avondale has it's share of mushrooms as well.
