Keep in mind in this area lawns are very large and your looking at around $200-$800. Guy says it all, LOL Recession proof. I live in CT and we get a lot of leaves!

How can he do it for $85 or less! He better have an Ace up his sleeve.

So? Let him loose money. He will figure out he's losing money soon enough if he has any smarts. You maybe can some cheap equipment off him when he's broke

it says most yards 85$ or less so maybe he just wants phone calls.

Most of the lawns for a solo person in a rich area in CT would take around 5HR give or take so he would have to use 5 guys so that's 5guys X $12HR = $60 per HR -$85=$25 for him then minus taxes, gas, food, etc. Ha ha he will be making as much as the workers.

The "ace up his sleeve" is that he requires on site disposal.

Not too many upper end clients are going to be impressed with that..... or call him for services.

That's what I thought.(Highlighed area) I get a $1.00 a minute on about 85% of the jobs I do. On the job you commented on I got $1.33. I had a friend that thought like you, he tried lawn care and it didn't work out for him. We don't talk anymore and he's not in the lawn care business anymore. Good-luck.

Things get better for me every year bud. Mowed Darrel walltrips back yard earlier in the season. Customer service levels are very high for me. Don't act like you know me just bc the friend went out of business. Trying to figure things out means do I want a big truck and trailer or izuzu lawn truck. Plenty of business here.
