    Welcome,

    There are alot of us here. I happen to be from the lower Southeast PA. Read all about pricing and steer clear from people trying to rake the new guy. Keep your prices and professional work at a standard and you will do well.

    thanks, been looking at the posts for a while. speaking to a few guys locally. trying to figure out my niche. I know I cant beat the local migrants but with the growth we're having in chester county I think I can find the right customers ( looking for no more than 10)

    I am just starting out here. I know Nutrasoils, Inc. I get my shroom dirt and Ickbin from them and the Jersey guys who sell the Ickbin (Ickbin- secret word for mulch) I am just outside of West Grove. What kind of pricing are your guys getting in these parts? I pretty much go on time spent at site and multiply it by my dollar needs.

    Just trying to make a living. There's enough grass for all of us if we top dress with mushroom soil (cured and killed that is).
