I am getting a lot of lawns in this new development where the homes go for $800,000 + I can't help that my lines are straight, I edge near the curb and beds with my trimmer and cleanup the curbs and roads. The problem is that I am "stealing" work from this same guy and I have notice on the new lawns beer bottles smashed on the side of the road and in the grass, garbage, etc. I got a new one a few days ago just because I mowed grass that was 3 feet tall because the town or the builder never mowed it and all the people in that area smiled and gave me a thumbs up. Well this guy walks far from his house and looks at me and says your "HIRED" and says can you start this week. He says that I see you work hard and I can tell you work hard and like doing your job. He said you know that no one would mow this area not even for $150, I mowed prolly about 40 by 200 with my new mower and it didn't even bog and didn't leave clumps. I feel that landscapers in that area hate me I got 6 more in that area and the lawn I "stole" is from a nice guy that always waives at me and his mexican workers. When the other company that I took like 4 of his which I now have about 12 homes in the same street gives me a dirty look like I'm gonna kill you and saw his red truck near my house awhile back and thats when I felt threaten. he parked 3 homes down and just sat there spyin at me and my house. All of the homes that I got were word of mouth from one guy.
