    As I mentioned this 25 acre cemetery is my job if I want it. It is a mixture of above ground and ground level head stones, and is a no bid prospect.

    I will be meeting with board of directors for an interview before the new year and they will be offering a salary for the work done. this is a tough question to ask with the limited information I am offering. Respectfully, I am not going to ask you guys for actual numbers but a range. What kind of annual revenue should I expect from this? I will hopefully know more about their equipment and expectations next week.

    a) $15 - 20k annually
    B) 20 - 25k
    C) 25 - 30k
    D) 30 - 35k
    E) 35 - 40k

    Yes the trimming sounds like the worst part. This is why I asked about PGR’s for the above ground grave stones, fence lines and other obstacles. I am considering bringing my son along one day a week to let him get his hands dirty and earn a buck or two doing the trim and blower work. Cant screw that up too much. I also was researching some of the trimmer attachments that can be attached to a zero turn. Anything to make myself more efficient.

    FYI, at this point just trying to wrap my mind around what I might have in front of me
