    Our rock in Florida is expensive. My cost per yard on this granite is $142 per yard, the flagstone is $0.25 per pound, I had 626lbs and the blocks were $3.93 each @ 60 pieces.

    agreed i made the investment in a dump trailer this year and wish i had done it sooner. way easier than shoveling from the ground to barrow. Other jobs will fall in your lap when you get more equipment. i prolly made 1k this year just in mulch deliveries even tho the nurseries do the deliveries as well. save up and get one. you wont regret it. Nice work!

    I do material delivery all the time. I get $65 for local delivery on my ton truck and $100 on my Topkick. And it’s pretty much zero physical effort.
