    As I stated In one of my last threads about a company getting $13.00 for lawns with a free spring clean up with a signed contract, I have lost 10%of my customers. These are people on my street. I can't wait to see this guy this spring busting his a** for 13.00 these lawns grow like weeds in the spring dump costs alone are going to kill him. He say's he has two helpers and him self 3 guys doing a lawn for 13.00 I don't see where he makes money.

    Doesn't make much sense does it. Why do the work so cheap I don't get it, people actually brag about how cheap they will do work for it cracks me up. He won't be around for long and your customers will come back with a good lesson learned, you get what you pay for.

    Cheap guys don't bother me too much. They go out of business fast and leave customers begging to take them back. They are in such a hurry to get the lawn done that the lawn looks bad and the customer calls back begging to take them back. Finally, there are a lot of lawns out there that are willing to pay a decent price and these are the ones I want.

    I agree 100%. Why would you work for less than is fair? All I ask for is a level playing field.

    already called him. But funny he won't return my call, or drop off the contract.
