I was approached by a neighbor of one of my customers who i was doing a pool landscape job for and they asked me to give them an estimate to dig a 15ft Arb that had got taken over by bag worms, fill in the hole with topsoil and lay down new mulch. I told her 150. I thought it was gonna take about 2 man hours to dig it. I would have to pay $20 to get rid of it and $5 for a bag of mulch. I didn't really want to do the job i thought it was gonna be a PITA. We dug the tree in about 20 min and i felt kinda bad going up to the door and asking for $150 for a 20min job but the wife asked about the job and the husband paid me for the work. He seemed happy till i told him what it cost. Then he had to go into the safe to get more cash.
