    Well, I had my first estimate on mulch the other day, and I really want the job but it involves seeding an area in the backyard.

    The area is almost completely bare. Dry hard dirt. 26x30 feet. What are the steps to seeding the area? Do you need top soil? Any equipment I need to rent or can it be done by hand? If anyone can give me the basic steps, difficulty, and amount of time this job would take Id greatly appreciate it. What would you guys charge to do this?

    Well thats unfortunate because Im not on lawnsite looking for jokes. I dont have time for jokes. I appreciate all the people that give good solid advice. If you dont have something positive to add to my threads then either dont read them or dont respond to me. :walking:

    well maybe he is joking with you because everyone and their brother starts up a landscape business because" hay its easy money anyone can do it". then they get on here and ask questions like how do i seed, what to wear to an estimat, how do i bid on a job, how do you do this and that.

    if you dont know what you are doing maybe you would be better off going to work for someone else for a while til you learn how to do things the right way. It will save you alot of money in the long run.

    hell there are alot of businesses i would like to start but i dont have any idea on what to do so i dont go start it then ask people how do i do it.

    typical response from a grumpy old lco. Do you realize that no matter how much you hate young entrepreneurs-we are the future of society? I took the steps to become legal and insured. Im trying to learn on the go. Im trying to make a career out of this. Many 18 year olds are out drinking and partying everyweekend making 7.25 an hour at a fast food joint just to buy their booze and cigs. So please, if you dont want to contribute to helping me out, then dont. Dont even click on a thread started by me. You probably think Im taking your customers so you want to be a jerk over the internet. Where were you at 18? Where were you when you first started? Let me know were you born with natural landscaping instincts?
