I'm taking on a cemetery job. need a few pointers from someone who already does these. The one I am getting is approximately 6-acreas. Will be payin year round. I will wait on responses!!!!!!!!
And, I'm sure for certain Cemeteries, the Flex-deck option can be time saver, too.Originally posted by Flex-Deck
Trimming takes a long time - about an hr for that number of stones.
Be careful and bid high - I donate my time to the church, but I can see that it is a job you would need adequate compensation for.
Yes, and death to the operator, too. That's why use WB's with velkies.Originally posted by sdwally
Cemeteries are early death to riding equipment. The average terrain and obsticles in a cemetery are extremly hard on riding equipment. When bidding figure in added equipment repairs.
I think your on to something. I dig graves at one cemetery (but don't mow). Have been approached about it though. Just don't pay enough. But if you mowed it every other week and only had to trim every 4th cutting (every 8 weeks like lawnman said) it might pan out. Appx 6 acres for $3200 a year.I would have to guess there is appx at least 500 stones of all shapes and sizes. Also I have a flex-deck on a 36" wb that I know would work wonders getting around all those head stones and uneven terrain. That thing is a real time saver when it comes to trimming. Just all those darn flowers stuck in the ground, what a nightmare. Marc :dizzy:lawnman20 we cut a good size cemetery i use Protrim form Lesco to spray aroung the head stones it last about 8 week then you have to trim them and spray again it stop the groth of the grass but does not kill the grass or change the color of the grass
