    if u started on a customer's lawn, in say, 2003, for say, $400 for the entire program, how much less do u think thier program would cost them in 2008?
     
  2. at least 10% a year, we are just out for the exercise.

    If nobody is decreasing prices why is lawnmowing a LOT cheaper now than it was 10 years ago?

    Who the heck wants to take a pay cut each year?? I've NEVER decreased my prices--I did increase them this year, however!

    Gas prices have continued to climb and a hurricane likely to give another excuse for a price hike!

    I'm actually more surprised more guys are not jumping to some other sites based on the amount of total Morons like this who are obviously so valuable to the advertising dept. to do anything about it.

    well, now you are all "professionals", aren't you? you see, i know that my first year on a property requires more treatments, more scouting, and more attention. as the years roll on, and we develop a healthier turf, and have the customer educated to the correct watering techniques, we need alot fewer treatments to maintain the now healthy, strong, resistant lawn. a real professional can actually lower the price of the program as the years go on, because there is far less involved in the program. unless, of course....you're delivering unnecesary treatments. but i just know, "professionals" wouldn't do such a thing. would you?
