I do this for a living and, unless I was bidding high so as not to win the project, that number is ridiculously high, and that's if I build 100% custom.
My son does sites too, and the $3000 sounded pretty steep when I first read it. Not steep for a more advanced intricate site. But for most lawn services starting out, they may really need not much more than 3 to 5 pages to start with:
5. Album optional
Probably wouldn't hurt for more new small companies to try out a site for several months and then have more built once they get feedback and think about it for a while.
