i use quick books pro for invoicing and accounting.
clean up, clean up sticks, leaves debris is the basic clean up you can cut back perennials & grass plants, rake baeds. i walk the property and think about how long it is going to take to get er done

mulching, are you edging? weeding? any removal or bed shaping? i usually go between$80-&110 per yard of colored mulch or bark mulch. i will walk the property and count off how much mulch i'll be using. i am sure some people will measure each bed and come up with the sq ' and do the calculatin depending on the depth of mulch they are using.

hope it helps

Anybody know where I can look into getting a 12" trailer? Smith trailers and equipment. Anybody ever dealt with them? What price do you think I can figure on paying. I went to a dealer few weeks ago and he said about $1200 I believe.
Smith Trailers is the ONLY way to go in Cincy. The costs have a lot to do with the axle and weight capacity and little to do with the size. Looking at $2000 for a single axle and $4000 for a dual-axle. Dandy dumps are the SH*T, but will run $7000 for a 12,000 lb capacity.

I know snow season is over, but I am cleaning out my barn and wondered if anyone was interested in a Highlighter magnetic 2 rotating beacon light bar, or a single magnetic strobe. Both work great and are in good condition.

Hi everyone. NorthCoast LawnScapes here. Just east of Cleveland. We will be attending the Best Buy open house. My name is Steve, I will be there most of the day. Looking forward to meeting you guys.

I'm a new-comer to this site. Was searching for a forum to complain about a maintenance company, and came across this site.

Everything is gassed and ready to go. Hope to do the commercial mulching jobs the last week of March.
