    Costs are at there all time high and everyone has raised prices. I know I raised everyone 5-10% from last year.

    I'm seeing numbers so low working at McDonald's you would make more $$$

    Luckily those low prices usually only last a few months, and the customers learn about what comes with a $15 dollar cut

    I'm talking about Commerical jobs not residential jobs. Residential I gave up on 6 years ago.

    Ah my mistake, sorry about that. Large commercials are definitely the money makers

    Tell me about it. Lost a commercial lot this winter to a guy that bid it to low and the lot ended up calling me back since he was a no show. Now I give the plaza owner my contract for lawn and he said he is going to try out the same guy that was a no show for winter. My price was $90 for mowing and his price was $35. Serviced this place for 4 years and this is how I get treated

    We have mowers on commercial property's today doing clean ups. They did a very nice job. Although a couple of days in the 50's and they will turn to mush I think

    Question. Where's the best place for mulch in Wayne/Oakland County. I've tried a few places but looking for something better.
    Thanks

    You should look into fertilizing.

    Thats why I gave up on commercial. That should be an 80$ cut and 100$ plow, there's 15mins of drivetime just getting in/out of there... every commercial in my area takes bids each year, and every year a different company I have never heard of does them, ill stick to residential for cutting.
