    We have been out of the maintenance side of the business for several years. When we were involved we ran all John Deere machines.

    Hey Guys I do alot of lawn care work but want to move more to the Landscaping side.

    What has been your guys best advertisment. That works for you.
    Flyers, phone book, newspapers? Newspapers for me.

    Is snow removal a important part of your business?

    How is the best way to bid jobs for landscaping?
    I take material cost + any transportation I have to do + Employee cost + How long I think it will take(per hour) + Machine useage per hour or retail fees + my time = price of job.

    How much do you guys charge for like remulching areas? Hour rate plus +transportation + my time = price of job.
    The main reason i ask is i want to be in the same bracket and have the same going rates As other Lawn Care & Landscaping Business.
