When you are bidding on a job, you have to stick as close as possible to your allocated budget. In other words, when you go to an estimate, and give the quote, the quote is with the understanding that you are covering you overhead and time appropriately. Therefore, if the customer squirms with the price, first give them a lecture on the cost versus value lesson, then, negotiate the scope of work to decrease the price. If it's just a straight mow and hedge, then stick to your guns even if you lose the bid. Remember, you're not in the business to save the customer money, you're in the business to make money for your business...
