Just realize that your parents are trying to help, out of touch as they may be with what lawn service costs, their heart is in the right place. My dad did the exact same thing when I was a kid, heck I used to ride my bike across town to his friends houses to cut grass with their push mowers for $10 or $15 because that's the deal THEY made! I was 12 or 13 at the time. You are at the age when you should have a sit-down with the folks and lay it all out there for them, respectfully of course. I'd suggest you write a business plan, include where you are with your business right now, where you want it to be in the next 2-3 years and then put the meat of how you are going to get there. Include what your profits are going to be and what your expenses are going to be in order to grow to that point. Show your parents the business plan, or better yet have them help you write it, and they will likely either quit quoting work for you.........or at least be better at it, haha.
