  2. Okay, we can do your bidding sight unseen.

    I am sorry I cannot visulize what this place looks like, nor could I do this from a pic.


    Amount of stones?

    Time for trash pick up?

    Time for deadheading/flower pick up?

    Also might need one of these to shave some time off.

    Not sure if this helps, but we do a cemetery that is 1.5 acres for 185 per cut that is only mowing, trimming, and blowing including the headstones. Occasionally they ask us to seed plots, usually there is 3 or 4 and we wait until we are out there and charge 10-15 bucks each. The mowing takes 2 guys 1.75 hrs.

    We did a cemetery about 4 acres in size 3 years ago, they want pretty much the same thing....mow trim blow $280/week, when it came to the flower picking and trash pick up I charged our landscape maintenance price $40/hour/per man. ten what we did was hire a few highschool kids for say $8-10/hour, your making money.....they did a good job to, you gotta find the right ones and pay them cash:D
