Ive said it before, if we have to see the site then we dont want their work. No, we are not running any leads. We even quote slice seeding from the office.

So, how exactly do you quote them a price without seeing them lawn. Not questioning how you do things but tryign to learn. I feel there are so many factors that go into pricing a lawn for any service, liek obsticles, hills, trees, landscaping that it woudl be hard to give someoen a price over the phone site unseen. Do you ever have any regrets as far as quotign someone too low?

Law of averages is figured into our price chart. There is no room for subjectivity. Just quote the price for their size lawn.
