I have a 27 cubic yard mulch job for next year. Just price it a little high and you will be fine. Good luck.

I blew it off. After talking to her on the phone myself she didn't sound like someone I wanted to work for.

From what I gather she's unhappy because she had it all done in the spring and now it looks lousy again and there's bamboo growing out of the beds that she can't pull out. I suspect she'd be complaining about anything I do as well. How do you guys handle this sort of thing? I haven't spoken with her yet but my wife has.
Her problem with bamboo sounds like the major issue of dissatifaction... Bamboo is a perennial fight that you will lose if the client is not willing to work with you... Talk to her personally and let her know what she is up against and what you are willing to do OR not do to help her through the problem...

Everything else may have ben acceptable, but bamboo will make a fool out of anyone who claims to be the best...
