    If anyone needs mulch installed I have the right tool for you. Min requirements or put a route together to hit a bunch of small jobs. Can also terra seed. Let me know. base operations is south of canton, ohio. You can make money and do little work promise. Just rake the edge knock it off the plants a bit and your set. I didn't believe it either know I do. 8 hour day with load and drive time 100 yards mulch. Let me know guys I can hook you up.

    Is this a service that you are offering to us or are you telling us about mulch blowing as a business?

    this is for you guys only. I think 25 a yard that includes mulch. red is about 2 dollars more I think. A friend of mine bought it he has been using it all year so far. he pu 95 yards in 1 day. He don't want to handle any direct work from customers. he will work directly with landscapers, contractors and commercial work only. WHen its done I go around rake up the edges, use a blower on the plants and your done. Think about it this way. If you get 60 a yard for mulch you pay him 25. Then you pay a guy 10 an hour to clean up the edges and bushes. You still got 35 left to pay the clean up guy. I cleaned up a 15 yard install in about an hour. I am telling you guys I was not for it to begin with but it will be the only way I install mulch from now on if I can help it. Also the seeding is great It called terra seeding you can put it on any type of soil. No top soil needed. Look it up it is pretty sweet.
