    last year i bid a residential,customer said she wanted top notch service,complete lawn and hedge trimming.so i give her a fair price,but a little stiff so i could spend more time on her yard.well she said she would call me and let me know and she did about a week later and said she decided to go with a full time lco.i felt like hell,but what can you do??? well what i did was send her a christmas card with my regular customers,and included a small letter about how i regreted i didnt get job and if i could ever be of service again let me know,well today my cell phone rang and guess who,yep said she was very unhappy with other lco(her biggest complaint was they mowed very early when grass was wet) and wanted me to come back by,so tonite i have a 1 year signed contract,for 15.00 more a week than i bid last year.just thought i would tell the story,i feel pretty good about the outcome.
