    @ McG_Landscaping ;

    If you don't mind me asking a few questions.. what did you get your snapper 48 wb for? Also, how do you price a ton/ yard of the river stones? I have a upcoming job myself involving them an I'm just curious what you charge for them. Also, you have any commercial accounts? Fat food places like those river rocks as a filler piece in their mulch ..

    Thanks! I also love the snapper! I have never had any major problem with it, just some normal maintenance and deck belts replaced.

    I actually got the wb for free. I believe new it was $3500 plus back in the early 2000s. My uncle is a landscaper and bought it for one account he had but after the lady moved he only used it to mow his 2 acres then it sat for a few years and he gave it to me. I do alot of work for him for nothing or for very little so it has been payment for my work. As for the river rock I priced the rock with markup then labor and what I wanted to make on top of that. After all said and done it ended up being close to $100/ton delivered and installed but I only had to wheel it 10 feet or so to dump it. This was a normal lawn customer that I had so he didnt even look into other companies. I have one commercial account right now. Its the garbage company my dad works for. This is my second year doing it. It is an every other week weed whack and knock down brush. Usually it turns into me weed whacking for 6 hours. But I am always looking to pick up more commercial accounts.

    Here are a few pictures that I have been meaning to put up but have been too busy. The rain this morning set me back a little so I figured I will do this until it slows down or stops.

    Nice work man, stripes look great. Lots of river rock there eh? I assume it's a #3 river rock?

    Thanks! Thats exactly what it is. It ended up being 12 tons...one ton on the truck at a time. I quoted it out at 14 tons so I made out but I might go add another 1/2 ton or so the the bottom corner by the shed just to make it look better.
    Thanks! I am in Shaler but i work from Lawrenceville to Westview to West Deer. I will work anywhere in the area if there is work!

    Wow 12 ton... should've had it all delivered! I'd be killed on time if I had to go pick up one ton 12 times!
