Got a call from a lady wanting an estimate for mowing/full maintenance of her lawn. I thought it would be a good lawn to bid since the grass is not growing but she is thinking about it. Went and looked at the yard, it was about 14,000 feet. I told her it would be $60 per mow. She got real quiet and said oooooooooooooooo. I said what do you mean? She said my other lawn guy was doing this yard for $33 a time!!!!! I said well there is no way I can get even close to that. Come to find out, the yard man she had is no longer in business! Imagine that! Just thought I would post this to let everyone on here that thinks they can charge NOTHING and stay in business what happens down the road. My advice: know your expenses BEFORE you bid the job, otherwise stop messing it up for the rest of us!
