I may be wrong but I have not met anyone who runs a actual solo business and does ok that does not charge at least $60 an hour , If you have a bunch of people working for you that's different , if you want to be able to pay your bills and keep decent equipment etc I would think you need to charge $60 hour , for me a leaf clean up takes about 1.5 to 2 times as long as just cutting the grass so that's what I charge , I have a feeling the guy was mad because you are lowering the price in the area , just remember some day you will have bills , house payment , kids whatever and how would you feel some person lowering the going rate in the area. If you are making $60 an hour and you are lower than everyone else great but if you are charging half that then you need to revisit your long term business plan , just my opinion .
