PICTURES are here http://community.webshots.com/album/550915712oRLRcI/0 shots i took about 2 months ago, my brother is on the mower. I dont know if shots of the half mile driveway are on here. Well, my largest property that i cut, early this year i quoted out at $125, which was still too cheap for the 5 acre lot i didnt estimate to be THAT big. The wife offers me $115 because the last lawn company cut for $120 and didnt want to pay more. I accepted, needing the work. For the 10 cuts this year so far, weekly, they have normally called to complain about minor things like cutting INSIDE the pool area, which the gate only opens 15", hence i use a string trimmer for 3 minutes JUSt in that area. I didnt cut around their mailbox, im sorry sir, it literally is .4 miles from your house, i did not walk up there with my trimmer, move a very heavy trampoline every time to cut under it and ladder in back of house. list goes on and on. minor things. The lawn already takes darn near 2hrs worth of work for one person on the mower entire time and other person doing everything else, which i finish before my brother finishes on the mower. Last week when i was out there, he asked me to bag the lawn lol, i said i cannot do that, even with the capability, i would need a dump truck to remove the grass or if i put it into his woods, would have to dump grass from almost a half mile away up his half mile driveway when full.... it would be $400 a cut or something literally. Last week his wife also tells my brother that works with me, she wants it cut THIS COMMING Wednesday LATE morning. like wtf, i dont offer a hourly service here for already a very very low rate for this lawn. So i planned my schedule to start with her lawn 9am wednesday morning/tomorrow. JUST because i know theyve complained about minor trimming issues in the past, i went up along their driveway and cut 2' tall and probably 500ft long of weeds from under the "horse fence" that borders their neighbors horse farm/back yard. I get a call today at 1pm, less than 20hrs notice, that they do not want me to cut the lawn anymore, he states he has another company that is going to do it and then states he bought his own machine too in the same message, says theyll pay me what they owe for my last cut, which is only one cut for $115.00 plus tax. I gave him a quote for lawn repair for most of his front/side yards back in late april too for $5k since its in terrible condition, hard to keep on the ZTR because you bounce off the thing, holes, pits, large bumps, weeds bunched up and lots of dirt, also floods there and water sits long times and i had to clean up my mower last time. I didnt want to drop them and liked the extra $115 weekly but what a customer. Remember, dont ever go out of your way above and beyond especially when theyve alrady bitched in the past and talked you down on price to begin with and did not want to sign a contract This lawn was $3565 plus tax per season, i take 3 equal payments over the season, april, june, august. The wife did not feel safe sending that kind of money for a deposit, i should have known right then to just walk especially after hammering down my price $10 per cut. BTW, they have a house that is 55' deep, two story in half of it, probably 7000+ sq ft, on over 5 acres, no neighbors and 220ft long, its worth a minimum, guessing of 2-3 million dollars in central jersey. i guess its for the good, figures theyre the type to stop service mid year.
