The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

Yep. The other properties we previously subbed totalled about 8 acres, but were split up over a couple of days. On this account, we'll just be doing it all at once. My son and I should be able to knock this one out in 3 hours or less.

I may have to invest in a new faster stick edger for this property since the driveway alone is probably 1000 feet long I'm currently using an old Toro combi unit that's heavy and slow.
