If I were you I think I would have subbed it out to a blowing company and made me about $10 per yard profit and called it a day.
How are you making a 45/yd profit? I believe you need to subtract vehicle expenses, payroll, etc. Y/N?

Without extra site specifics, that would be an $8150.00- $ 8800.00 job here..don't worry, if you are making $$ at 4K, that's all that matters

I'm in Nashville, Tn. and I charge $50 per cu. yd. I get my throat cut by other "landscapers" every week charging $30 per cu. yd. I can't charge any less and it be worth doing.
