    I thought I show a close up of the pics on my trailer wrap. Lawn pics are nice but it's the landscape jobs that can put thousands of dollars in your pockets pretty quickly. I'd have to have my crew mow a lot of lawns to pull down the $7k or so I made doing this job. Not including the stone work and irrigation work this was a two install.

    I'm guessing you guys didn't install the pool for 7k lol. That is some high quality work. Looks great.

    Looks great. But seriously 7k is all you made? That just doesn't sound like much.

    It was a $20K project for the front and back (we didn't do the pool install). I just took a look and the profit was probably closer to $8K. The backyard has $3K in lights. My mason works as a subcontractor so my stonework markups are minimal. On the landscape the goal is usually a 33% - 40% profit margin. The lighting profit margin runs 50%.

    Taking home $8K on a $20K job is a 40% take home so I'm pretty happy. Including all the prep work I had my crew at the job for two days and I spent two days getting plants and installing the lights. $8K for fours days work is something most people would kill for. I'd like to hear from anyone who would complain about having $8k in their pocket for less than a weeks work.

    I was under the impression you installed the pool.

    No problem. 7K for doing the pool as well would suck!

    I agree. Those guys that do the gunite pools come out with a million dollars worth of equipment. They better be making the big bucks.
