    I am 30 min. north of ATL I can buy pinestraw from a store front for $3 a bale. I charge 5.50 to install it but only on a maintenance customer. I charge $6 on others. I know of about 7 very large guys around here and they all charge $6. Also if one of my guys only put out 10-12 bales an hour he would be looking for another job!! We average about 20 an hour.

    We charge $6.50-7.50 per bale installed. I can actually have someone come up from GA to do it for me @ $4.75.
