Seven years ago there was a 3 acre yard I use to do for 135 every 2 weeks.It would take me all day with my old Murray. The guy always paid me but was a penny pinching tightwad. I quit doing the yard because it was out of my way and not feasible. The guy calls me this morning and said his other guy retired (older fellow) and wanted to know if I would do it once a month. I told him I did not usually do yards less than every other week. Now I will say when I did this yard before it had very slow growing centipded. There was several times it could have easily went more than 2 weeks. I told him I would try it a couple of times for 225 and he told me to go ahead. I have a LOT better and faster equipment than 7 years ago and think I can do it in less than 4 hours or maybe 4.5 I know that most of you are going to say "no way" but my phone is not exactly ringing off the hook. That 225 will make my truck payment, I may try it and see,it may not work out but am going to give it a shot. Also have 2 other yards now in the area so is more feasible.Also he said he and his wife would keep all the limbs and pine cones picked up (we will see).
