Im honestly not sure if you are being serious or joking? Back in March this year you were defending $12 lawns on this forum.

So is the $12 lawn a highly profitable market niche, or the benchmark of the unprofitable "lowballer"?

I have been thinking the samething. I drove by some of my lawn customers and I swear they could be cut.

Metro and Premier that's it! I'm throwing down the gauntlet! I'm dropping my price to $9 this Spring.

Seriously, I did a clean-up on Monday and I was looking at my lawn at home - it could use cutting. I've actually picked up more lawn customers in December than I did in October. Frigging weather. Some snow would be nice.
