Like others on here I don't see a big difference between the lawns. You're charging 30 and he's charging 30 and he's finished first, he's making more money because he's doing a 30 dollar job, you're doing a 40 dollar job for 30 bucks.

Also being a one man show doesn't matter... If you mow a lawn in 30 minutes with one guy (solo) and mow the same property in 15 minutes with two guys it's still half an hour of billable man hours.
