    So what does it look like after you mow it? OR did you turn this one away?

    I've had it with crap jobs.

    I'm in a position where I can turn work away and all this talk about parking YOUR vehicle in front of a yard and how that effects your reputation is getting to me.

    I would not take a job like that. I don't know why it has taken me so long to learn this lesson (if indeed I did learn it), I've been turning down crap work in window cleaning for years.

    A few years back when I first started I got a call from some guy who had a property that hadn't been cut in months. I went over to look at it. Pretty small yard (5000 sq ft) but it was 2 feet tall. I quoted him almost $150.00 hoping he would turn me away and to my surprise he took it. I did it and he paid me on time.

    About 2 weeks later I got a call from him and he hooked me up with a townhouse complex, 5 rentals and a commercial dry cleaners. Turned out he worked for a property mgmt. company.

    Im glad I took that **** job ;)

    I had to look at your location... Thought I was looking at some of my other local LCO's lawns. LOL!
    We've noticed this year there seems to be a lot of people letting their lawns go. Dont know if it is absentee landlords, or people just dont care. Whatever it is, I've never seen so many uncared for lawns.

    Dang I wish that would happen to me! And to MattfromNY I don't know why people are leaving their lawns go but my guess would be gas prices
