I was out bided by the most expensive and biggest company in my area on a bed design and mulch job. Are these bigger companies getting very desperate in this economy, and bidding really really low. I bided 2,500 for a leaf removal , 30 yards of mulch , pruning , shaping, bed edging, cutting of low lying branches and building a few new beds. I am not sure how this guy went any lower , than me , this guy had like 20 guys working on it, a bob cat on site, 2 huge dump trucks. I am smaller and have less overhead and 2, 500 was even low to me.
