Nice equipment, question though, how do you make any money selling mulch jobs at $50/yard? (which I read on your website) I charge between $85-$105 per yard based on the property contours. I just can't understand how guys make any net profit with such low prices? Please enlighten me?

Not criticizing you, just curious.

*EDIT: Forgot to mention, I really like the layout of your website. Well done!

No worries man. In our area the average price for a yard of mulch is approx. $55-$75 per yard is about the max you can get. I buy ALOT of mulch so my prices are lower and also the loaders usually throw on extra when we go in which helps with the bottom line. My money is made on my contracts and this was just a way to draw some new customers in. I did not sell a whole lot off the website this month and that sale will end at the end of the month and go back to my normal prices.

As of right now I have very low overhead as well so I can make ok money at those prices.

LOL good question. I probably wont this year. Luckily I mow 14 other yards (at the correct price) within .3 miles so no big deal.

I was reading in your "about" page on the website and just wanted to share that your story sounds about exactly like mine. i started in 2003 when i was 13 with my dads riding mower in my neighborhood and got 10 yards my first year. Cut grass all through high school, didn't go to college though, and still at it today! good luck man!
