    Watching the gas pump tick away dollar signs while I fuel up.

    Depends on the job. Some days driving seems to take up a lot of time, others it is talking with customers. Right now it is watching all the rain come down and thinking about the work I would like to be doing. Oh yah, some days sitting on this site is very time consuming.

    I think what takes me the most time is mulching,or hardscaping. Mowing trimming blowing is a walk in the park.

    Depends on how you look at it. personally I would say trimming because mowing pretty much takes a set amount of time to get across a yard, almost the same idea for blowing. But trimming depends on how fast I can motivate myself (or employee) and how detailed you try to be. But based upon $ per hr vs overhead the trimmer is actually making you more than the mower. :confused: IE: $350 trimmer @ $1 per min vs $10000 mower @ $1 per min.

    for me, it would have to trimming bushes and talking with customers.

    Mowing a big back yard with a 32" WB that gets real old real fast, that also the reason why I just bought a 48" Wb. Other than that the trimming bushes, and leaf clean ups.
