    What does the price include? Just cutting or pulling the dirt back?

    factors to include:

    rake grindings in or haul out
    how much can you actually do with machine always a little piece that needs to be done buy hand
    rake mulch back edge then rake mulch back down

    We always try and talk home owner into using dirt if possible like seeding dead patches from last year then hit them for seeding and materials
    or install a raised bed with grindings

    I have had trench master for 3 years it has paid for itself every March. April, May,June each year.
