I used to mow her yard about every ten days for $45.00 per cut. She called me yesterday and asked if this year we can cut every seven days, but for 35.00 per cut???? I said no.. but I could swing 40.00 per cut. the yard is about 1acre.. but tons of trees and a ton of string trimming. I hate this yard.. but its my ex g friends moms.. and she is very nice. Another customer lives in a million dollar house. Her husband is a Dr. and they are going thru a divorce. The house has a pool and I have to string trim the back yard. this yard takes about an hour start to finish and I get paid 50.00 for it. I also cut her moms yard for the same price. She called me and said that since she is going thru a divorce, that times are hard at the moment and only wants a mow once a month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF ? A million dollar house with a mow once a month? I cant say no.. I cut her moms and her soon to be ex husbands house too. She also gives me a huge xmas bonus every year too......... what to do Are you experiencing this too ???
