ok, Here's the story... I have been mowing this lady's lawn, a nice lawn...not perfect but nice, sice I started my lawn business almost a year ago. She has been a pain in the ass from day one, but I'm getting $30 per cut 4 times a month on a yard that takes me about 40min to do, so I have delt with her... She asked me to flatten an area that had turned into a mound that runs the entire length of the back of her house and down one side, of mulch and dirt that she had been piling up every year for about 3-4 yrs now. She mentioned that she likes to put the mulch down herself, and just needed me to flatten the area, and haul off the dirt so that it could be re-mulched again to look nice. I Charged her $125.00. $100 for the labor, and $25 to haul the dirt and mulch away. I literally filled my 8ft bed about a foot over the edges with dirt. I estimate about 1500-1800lbs...maybe more. I did this by myself, with a shovel and a wheel barrow. it took me about 5hrs....non-stop! When it was all said and done, she didn't want to pay me the full amout b/c she said she thought the price I gave her included dumping the old dirt, picking up a truck load of mulch and bringing it back and spreading the new mulch....keep in mind she thought that the price I gave her included what it would cost to buy the new mulch...she basically wanted me to buy the mulch for her...about $80 worth I estimate.... I guess she only wanted to pay me about $20 for the labor. I may just be venting here, but do you think I did her wrong or charged her too much??? I wish I had some pics to share.
