OK so I got my liscense 2 years ago thinking I could make a killing on turf control. That was a bunch of garbage. Don't get me wrong when I do it I make a good chunk of money, but Chemlawn always seems to take my customers. My loyal customers don't care about the price as long as it looks good. The other 50% will have some excuse. Usually that chemlawn is much cheaper. For example my weed n feed cost is $21 per 10K 40lb bag. I apply the recomended 4lb / K. I get $5 per K up to 30K then it drops to $4 per K over 30K. I feel that this is actually a little low considering I blow off the driveway and actually treat what I say I will. I'm guessing that chemlawn is about $3.50 per K, but I'm not sure and don't know their application rate. All I know is good customers get very irrate and angry when I tell them it will be $150 for their 30K lawn. Almost like I asked then for a $50,000 loan. It usually goes that chemlawn is a ton cheaper (20--30 really) and then they are so bitter about the high quote that they wont use any other services or drop me the next year. So what is my response when they give me this BS? I know what I want to say, but I keep that to myself.
