    Yea man ive been in the business 20yrs and this is my first year running my own business and you thought me so much. I thought it was gonna be easy but it nog but you help me bring me back to zero so thank you man i enjoy your content

  2. Eulises Flores on April 14, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    2 cents Always carry atleast 4 pieces of full sheet plywood… make your own road turn a big trailer onto a driveway. Or mud

  3. Grasshopper Garden Services on April 14, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Great idea using YouTube private. Thanks for sharing your ideas and ways of doing business. Hope house is going well. 🏡

  4. So-Cal Ponds, Inc. on April 14, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    I’d quote our day rate plus disposal fees of two trips X amount of tons.

    I would bring in our mini skid steer clear everything and load everything directly into the trailer.

  5. William Parson on April 14, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    I personally haven’t gotten a big job like this yet. I just started about a month ago. So far I’ve just cut grass, weedeat weeds and pickup limbs. But I just live in a small town and the most I’ve got off one job is a lot less than you quoted this job for. But I quite prices by the job. I’m a one man crew and I only have one small commercial job. Takes about 45 minutes start to finish.

  6. George Jefferson on April 14, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    You’re videos are awesome! Iv used YouTube for years and never created a profile until I watched you , I recently resigned from my IL state prison job to open up my very own landscaping business , please check the channel out Keith !!! You’ve helped me a crappppp ton thanks again for the ideas and help!!

  7. Derek Schaff on April 14, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Always interesting to see how others bid. So much depends on where you live and the neighborhoods you cater too. You can’t be afraid to bid higher. It’s better to go higher than to bid way too low and screw yourself and lose money while your at it. We all started with those learning curves. I just did a job as a subcontractor for a local business for a 16yd mulch installation and planting almost 70 plants. The company charged $9000 approx for the job, paid me $2000 to for the labor to do it. All material provided by them. Seemed good for $1000 a day. Took 2 days. Lesson here was I would of never have come up with $9000 for this job I would of been lower for sure. So don’t be afraid to bid higher. People expect and budget for work that is more involved. You can always work down a little but you can never go up once you agree on a price.

  8. Baileys Landscape Maintenance LLC on April 14, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Hey guys. Off topic. I was watching some older vids from keith for plant i.d. check out dirrs manual of woody landacape plants if you ever want to know about a tree or shrub. Still cant find a good all inclusive on annuals and perennials but i’ll keep looking.

  9. Hambden Outdoors on April 14, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Love that day rate idea!

  10. blue on April 14, 2021 at 11:55 pm


    Plus material costs additionally??

    How did u break down the 1500 a day?

    What if i just did it all myself.

    Or w one helper?

    And it took me 4 days

    How do u suggest i bid it?

    On this job, id rent a dump truck.

    Currently rocking the mini van. But know the work. And won’t downsize a big job offer, cuz of any reason

  11. Star View Landscaping on April 14, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    The more simple u can make it for everybody it just makes it easier for both customer and contractor. Itemizing everything most of the time gets ridiculous

  12. Don-Roy Graham on April 14, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    yea i do that too … i have a day cost, it doesn’t matter how bad it is.. i can’t lose a hour or mess up my operating cost… then i start adding everything .. even my bullshyt cost… yea i have a 15% of whatever the price is *bullshyt cost* that get added

  13. White Oak Farm on April 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Can you please call me?? Here is my email.
    Thank you!

  14. max grabenstein on April 14, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Keith that wheelbarrow comment @ 4:00 is so hilarious. Your emotion in that moment hit home on so many levels

  15. blue on April 15, 2021 at 12:00 am

    People online are saying the ditch witch damages the lawn? I googled it “does ditch witch ruin your lawn” and people were complaining. So…. but it was unclear. And not the ditch witch itself. Similar machines. What is everyone’s experience?

  16. H and J lawn care on April 15, 2021 at 12:01 am

    You’re a bad ass Keith!! But how did you came up with that number? I usually do $60 per men Hr and estimated for how long and add a 20% on top . Thx

  17. aos aos on April 15, 2021 at 12:02 am

    I charge per load typically myself with most jobs lik that and tell customers I’ll start with two loads and see what’s left after that not the best way but I usually land jobd easily lots of ways to price jobs but that one seems very easy and all most all profit great video

  18. JKC Lawn Care And Landscape on April 15, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Hey Keith how do you do a private channel on here ? I typically store it on the phone in general in a folder 📂 but the YouTube idea I like

  19. John on April 15, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Just curious Keith, have you considered purchasing a ditch witch? You seem like you could keep it busy, and it would turn that into a day job easy 🤟🏻

  20. Synthetic Grass Showroom,inc on April 15, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Day quotes work for me pretty good, as a mater of fact I believe in our industry that’s is the only way to charge for work. 👍🏽

  21. JPS on April 15, 2021 at 12:03 am

    I do painting, there is some custumers that likes itemized quotes, some time they ask for multiple quotes with a lot a variations on the same job.
    I learned the hard way. Now I look for the low hanging fruit and leave those customers for some one else.

  22. Pavel Paškevič on April 15, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Hey, Keith! Do You do all thinking on landscaping design (which trees, shrubs, flowers to plank, how many, layouts and etc)?
    It would be nice to see video about it from You. ☺️

  23. Grady Wray on April 15, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Im telling you Keith. you gotta get yourself a mini skid steer. You can do demo jobs like this in a day no problem. They can access almost anywhere and have plenty of power for most small grading and demo jobs like this. I got one for my business this year and its cutting days out of my jobs.

  24. Brandon Skinner on April 15, 2021 at 12:06 am

    HILARIOUS Keith Kalfas compilation!! 🤣🤣

  25. Kuhlyedascope69 on April 15, 2021 at 12:06 am

    dont drive in the lawn man wtf

  26. ryan king on April 15, 2021 at 12:09 am

    $3000 for that what a rip off

  27. Christopher Brown on April 15, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Keith is the MAN

  28. Richard Charnock on April 15, 2021 at 12:10 am

    I love these videos man. Thanks for doing them, they help a lot. I can’t lie, I’d love to see this project process too! Anyway you’d consider doing a video on it?

  29. Jman on April 15, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Whats a good way to figure out a day rate? Because i like the idea of that.

  30. Cyber Mixologist on April 15, 2021 at 12:14 am

    1500 is pretty good but 2000 is better esp if you can add few line items to boost main rate

  31. Dillon DeClue on April 15, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Do you plan on using a mini skid like a dingo for that demo or just all manual labor?

  32. Martin Extraordinaire on April 15, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Really great stuff!

  33. Star View Landscaping on April 15, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Right about what I would charge. Good deal

  34. Ethan on April 15, 2021 at 12:20 am

    You deserve more subscribers!! Id love it if you could message me or contact me via email, im 19 and looking to start out in landscaping. Im a laborer at a local Garden Center, but a larger scale business. I learn a lot. Ive been binge watching your videos for insight, id love some advice!

  35. Mad Mowing on April 15, 2021 at 12:21 am


  36. ryan king on April 15, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Overpriced and you’ll drive in their front yard

  37. italian fighter on April 15, 2021 at 12:25 am

    I do flat quotes, but I get quite a few customers who want it itemized. They want to decide based on line items if they want to remove items to reduce price or add items. Kind of frustrating when they muddy it up.

  38. April Beatty on April 15, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Great video keith theres always helpful info on every video you make thanks so much man

  39. Mad Mowing on April 15, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Great idea on the blog quotes, I’ll be starting mine.

  40. Jonathan James on April 15, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Hey show us how you rope off the srubs to the truck! That sounds fun to see.

  41. Cs Cs on April 15, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Greetings from channahon il

  42. Cs Cs on April 15, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Thanks bro

  43. R1 motovlogger on April 15, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Saw you at Walmart today dude!! I got real excited and wanted to say what’s up but didn’t wanna interrupt you and the wife!! Keep it up man my cousin just started his own business all because of your motivating videos

  44. Luke Mancl on April 15, 2021 at 12:35 am

    Been watching this over and over as I am on my way to check out my first “demolition” landscape job, I like the day rate idea and including removal with that

  45. Mr Vera on April 15, 2021 at 12:38 am

    KEITH KALFAS!!!!!! Hey my brother, I have a request!? I am looking at taking my business more legitimate. Can you do a video on how to go about covering the legalities and the formalities of making a business legitimate..?? Where to go what to do etc etc etc. you’re like a brother to me my friend, let me know if you can help?

  46. Matthew Roth on April 15, 2021 at 12:38 am

    peepee butt

  47. Racer X on April 15, 2021 at 12:40 am

    Man, you probably don’t have a big area to just store stuff do you? Keep and reuse or repurpose some things, sell it very cheaply. It probably isn’t worth the time but for someone who isn’t a business owner that has a lot of extra time it would be great for someone like that. The stone isn’t cheap, but the old stone would have to be cleaned efficiently.

  48. Green Extraction Technologies,LLC on April 15, 2021 at 12:41 am

    When it comes to tree work we itemize everything and then offer a day rate volume discount if all work is approved at the same time

  49. Bobby Jenkins on April 15, 2021 at 12:42 am

    200 per day.
    12 hour days
    One man crew
    I wanna start a YouTube channel so I can try and make what you make.
    Like if I could get a extra 200 from YouTube I might be able to afford to have a second crew member

  50. Anthony Ramirez on April 15, 2021 at 12:45 am

    Keith I love ur videos brother but how the hell are you making money

    1. 1500 a day ?????!!!! With 3 guys?????!!

    2. How the hell does it take 3 guys 2 days to do this? this is maximum 1 day with 2 guys

    I have been back and forth with employees…. find the right people brother 3-4 of my guys clear 7-10k gross in a day EASY

    Get yourself some Mexicans 😎😎
