none I do for free or at a loss because I enjoy it. But I have taken on customers at a loss because we simply wanted the property for a marketting standpoint, such as a corner lot into a subdevelopment, or an a busy corner with a lot of passing traffic. In those cases we give the our normal price and then on a seperate line we apply the discount for them allowing us to use lawn signs etc. But doiing it at a loss because you enjoy the lawn makes no sense. You might as well walk up to the door, hand the customer cash to walk through the property.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!
