Just wondering what some of you guys would charge to remove the existing pinestraw and install hardwood mulch. I have a large commercial property that has always been pinestraw (325bales) It was freshly strawed two weeks ago. However, the new management wants to rip it up and put down mulch. (107 yds at 1 1/2" or 130 at 2") Normally I charge the price of the pinestraw installation to remove it. However, I do not want to loose the property from a maintenance standpoint, as it is close to $3k per month. And the new management has already balked at my original price for removal and installation of the hardwood. Especially since the conversion from pinestraw to mulch would increase the monthly billing another several hundred dollars per month. They are talking of bidding this out. Just wanted to get some other people's thoughts on this.
