Yes I know that it is slim for making money and the bad part is that's what every other landscaper charges in the area for big or small companies. I do charge additional for fuel on each job but its still not much money after all the overhead. Insurance alone cost $70 for each day we work. If I were too much more I wouldn't get any jobs. Everyone already says I am higher than the others but go with me because of all the good things they hear about the work we do.
I have had so much business this year but with the weather and not so great employees I haven't made a dime yet this season. I haven't been able to pay myself a salary and just waiting until I get ahead on bills. Every other year I have done just fine and made money, not a lot but some.
