Right terrible advice after being in business full time for 30 years. Yup it clearly does not work. If we priced lawns like some of you claim we should then we would be out of business in no time flat. I would bet money if the new customer wanted they could get somebody to do it for $45. They would get another crew that would show up with 4 guys. 2 or 3 on 60" zero turns and 1 or two trimming and blowing off. They would cut the 2 acre lawn and be done in 20 minutes flat for $45. Like I said the crews here make there money in volume. Make a little less on each lawn but work daylight to dark and knock out 40 lawns a day.


Like I said you have to price for your area. Come here with those high prices and you would never get any work.
