Welcome,

There are alot of us here. I happen to be from the lower Southeast PA. Read all about pricing and steer clear from people trying to rake the new guy. Keep your prices and professional work at a standard and you will do well.

Just Starting Out in S. Chesco, PA

I am just starting out here. I know Nutrasoils, Inc. I get my shroom dirt and Ickbin from them and the Jersey guys who sell the Ickbin (Ickbin- secret word for mulch) I am just outside of West Grove. What kind of pricing are your guys getting in these parts? I pretty much go on time spent at site and multiply it by my dollar needs.

Just trying to make a living. There's enough grass for all of us if we top dress with mushroom soil (cured and killed that is).

2003 Skag Turg Tiger 25hp 61"
1992 Exmark 32" w/b
1974 19" Lawn-boy (best trim mower in the world) 43lbs. wet
