I do a lot of down selling myself. When I'm sleepy I'll tell my client that I'll knock 30% off if I can skip the edging.
$3.75! I'll give 100% if they don't make me do anything.

Figure out how much you need to make to keep things running (gas, labor, bills) and come up with a hourly price. For some it might be $25 a acre others might charge $55. Depends on what your equipment is and how easy the job is. No 2 yards are the same and no 2 companies are the same.

How do you upsell? Or what do you tell the homeowner?
