    Im New This Year And Have 18 Accounts In The Grand Blanc Area. I Think Im Getting Pretty Good Pay For My Lawns. I Get Prospective Customers Telling Me How Little The Other Guy Charges,etc. I Have Gotten Other Info Through The Grapevine That Indicates Others Working For Way Less Than Me. Can Some Of You Guys Let Me Know What Lawns Are Being Cut For Around Here? Thx

    I think that is a universal issue. I get the story as; last year it was 2 guys @ 2 1/2 hours and they only charged. Then you talk to the tenants and they will tell you ya, some days it was 5 guys at 6 hours and other days it was 15 guys at 3 1/2 hours. If you do get to see the last contract, chances are it is over a year old.

    BTW- I would think that the GB area would be one of the better areas to stay in for the business, other than going down to Sterling Heights or east of the Pontiac areas where all of the nicer houses are.
