My buddy had the contract for the local walmart at $1600 per month. It was time to bid again and he didn't get it. It went to a new lawn company that I have only seen around maybe 2-3 years for $985 per month. He does a descent job on it as well. However...... I see him picking up more work at these cheaper rates and the quality going down because he is overloaded on work and can't handle it.
It's everywhere. Commercial accounts are all about price. Government too. Cheapest guy wins. You can't operate a business this way and hope to make a profit.
