my 2 cents

Im just offering my 2 cents.......I am also new to this buisness. I charge $75 a yard for mulch, you said you did it for $40, it cost me $30 for a yard.....not making much there. And as far ad $30 an hr for labor, i dont know about where you live but here in NJ there are more landscapers than lawns to cut, its crazy how many you see. I charge $65 an hr labor and my customers dont even blink at that.........goodluck

well like i said since this guy doesnt care as long as it looks decent i am going to use this cheap mulch we have around here for 10 a yard so i figured charging 40 is decent profit? also i think i must be misunderstood about the labor. it's me and my dad, 5 hours, so 2 guys for 5 hours =10 hours i'm charging. my dad just doesn't want me to pay him to help because he knows i need the money and he's just bored sitting around and glad to have something to do. i'm getting paid for the labor, all hours are being charged. maybe i was unclear on this, but i thought i stated originally 2 guys for 5 hours, im charging 10 hours. maybe i didnt
