    I was out today and i saw a sign zip tied to a metal pole that read. "Lawncare u set the price xxx-xxxx" How are these idiots doing this to themselves. Its killing they industry. What do you guys think?

    I would call this guy and sub contract all of my work for $5.00 a lawn.....But for real, this guy won't last long. Back to the factory for him!!

    Try to call them to get a estimate on a friends yard or something and see what they will go for, price wise.

    I'm going to call him and have him come so i can tell him he can mow my yard for $4.00. But really i'll see what he says and get back to you guys.

    You set the price huh? Wow, could you send him out to one of your multi acre properties and pay him like 3.50 and tell him you're on a tight budget and see if he'll take a post dated check? Im shocked this is going on.

    Must be a Missouri Marketing Plan. I saw that sign down here (Spfld) for yard clean ups after last year.
