Allright first off the lady starts out by asking for a "trimming of entire property" I give her a price of $650 + $35 for each load to the dump. Finished that with three loads. Walk around with her to show her my work, she likes it but says "Can you put in edging on the front garden and fill with Cypress mulch?" Sure no problem. Then asks for me to put landscape fabric down, despite the drawbacks she wants it down anyway. Likes it so much so wants the entire side garden done which is the length of her property. Which includes now of tearing out all the ivy growing there. And she wants me to use TWO layers of landscape fabric. So far she has not even asked for a price on all this work, which makes me worried, giving her an estimate 1/2 through tomorrow though so not to scare her when we are done... Here is the total dimensions for everything done: *350 linear ft of metal edging installed ($8 for 8ft section) *20 yards of cypress mulch installed (no one sells by bulk around here but figure $70 a yard by bag) *Ripping out of ivy and wisteria in about 2000sq ft section * Installing black F****** edging in between property lines, preventing wash out of mulch * Installing 4000 sq ft of landscape fabric with yard staples Good Luck!!
