Customer ask for a break down. The First Landscaper wouldn't tell the break down of his bid of 50k. The customer cant compare to other bids and Customer don't even know what he is getting.

You wouldnt buy a new truck with out knowing what you are getting for 50k
I used to do that a long time ago then had customers say something like well I saw block for this much or can I buy the block ect and have you just charge me the labor portion (that was in the bid). I also don't break down any labor per hour cost..the customer would freak out if they knew what i really made per hour because we aren't a bunch of goof offs ..we try to hump it and get to the next almost get questioned or "penalized " for being a hard worker
