I have posted about this property before. BIG place; several acres, 4 car garage attached to BIG house, fountain in front of house, tennis court, in ground pool, etc. Takes 1 1/2 hrs for 2 people on big riders to just cut. I worked at this place for a friend cutting the grass with his daughter. He got $75 for it each week He and his daughter got into a fight and she no longer cuts the lawns for him. About a month ago I went with him to cut the grass. He never went back after that because he realized that he had underbid it, and because of the horrid drainage problem. Before his daughter quit, we had taken the homeowner's lawn mower with us to get it fixed as per his request. My friend still had the lawnmower at his house and I offered to return it to the homeowner. He was fine with that. So today I brought the mower over to this guy's house. The man who works there told me to come back later, because apparently the homeowner had somebody come in 2 weeks ago to cut 3 weeks worth of growth, but that guy wasn't coming back. So a bit later I talked with the homeowner. It turns out that we both went to the same college. He wanted to know what happened with my friend and I explained the situation about the money and offered to re-bid it. I told him $300 to cut the place every week, and to do half the trimming each week. He wanted to know about cleaning up some weeds in the driveway and I told him $150 just to spray them with Round-up. Long story short, I think he was more interested in having me do the work than my friend. Now my friend has helped me out a bunch of times when I was in jams and doesn't ask for anything in return. So what do you all think? Would it be wrong of me to take this account? My friend quit because he wasn't getting enough for the lawn, and wasn't getting the side work he wanted. I was able to get it after 10 minutes talking with the guy.
