Did I say I blew grass in her property? She ask me if I could blow it off because the other neighbor mows it for her but he doesn't clean the drive off and all the debris from the neighborhood ends up there.

Now see if you werent charging too much that could be a potential customer. I mean your gate is already dropped, right?....why else would they pay you weekly to cleanup after the other neighbor mows. That dont make sence. Either your quality lacks, or you are just too high........................Anyway dont have time to play the fuss game of the youngin lawn care providers on here. Good luck though, hope its a good year for you all

Or maybe since the neighbor does it for free to help her out I should do the same? Maybe bring her an iced tea also? Maybe then I can say " look at how many lawns I cut"

In my eyes it all comes down to would you rather have 30 lawns at $20 a pop or 20 lawns at $30. There's far too many guys that get into the lawn industry just to make a living, then there's those of us that want a viable business. So to some $20 an hour bring home (in fuzzy math to boot) is great, and to some $20 an hour is what goes into their investment fund. I'm not knocking anyone personally, just the masses of idiots. I know the joys of free business is anyone can charge whatever, but when so many people undervalue themselves it pulls everyone down with them. Heck I remember when I first worked for someone else 11 years ago he would get $50 for lawns I would price at $35 today and still not get, and the work that company put out was just average, nothing great. It's supply and demand almost, anymore there's such a surplus of us that it keeps going down.

On a side note I survived the wrath of enviroscabs, they didn't get any of my commercial work and I'm pretty sure I got a hotel and a bunch of apartments back from their local lovers.

Whine, whine, whine. This site is poison. I'd recommend people not take 95% of the posts here seriously. Just a bunch of kids with little to no clue.

Considering the people whining all have 10+ years in business...I'd have to disagree that we're kids.
