Bet he loved getting paid, you guys charge by the yard or the hour?
We charge 65per yard installed, that includes edging,weeding, and installing the material. that is just my labor rate.
So for this job the mulch cost like $700 bucks for the 20 yards
The labor was $1300, not bad for 6 hours.
For a grand total of like $2000 bucks for everything.
Another overgrown lot. The grass was over 4 foot high in most spots.
That lot looks a lot like the lots i did this past week! Def takes some time to cut it down after people let stuff get overgrown. looks good!!
Oh finally some ugly lines Ben
lol yea i was pretty much just mowing in circles, and going all over, i wasn't too concerned with trying to make lines this time lol
Looks a lot better! I did one today where the lawn hadn't been cut since the fall. Due to the soil being too acidic the grass and weeds didn't grow too well and it was only a foot or so high, and it was small lawn under probably 2500 sq ft. And with the clean up, shrub priming and dump run it ended up being pretty profitable. And I cut it bi weekly now and have the fall clean up and snow plowing. So a little 300 dollar job on sunday turned into alot more.

Nice thats about the same as us, mulch is a real money maker for us, we bought a 22hp kubota this winter and that sped everything up, a lot better than a wheel barrow
Why do you "double-cut" ???
Because im not a hack.
