    last week got a call from a old account can you come mow my lawn.
    I asked him what happed to the guy how was saving you $10.00
    bucks a week??
    I get to the house it was one big f'n mess,had to mow it 3x's
    all the work i did over the past 2 years was gone to ****..
    then he asked me to fix all the edging and clean up the mess??
    I told him you'r cutting price is going up $10.00 a cut!!!!
    and go to cost $800.00 to clean up the mess!!!!!!!
    he said OK ,lost the job for one year but now i have it back and makeing more $$$$...
    so if you lose a job to a low baller dont worry they be back
    your work will talk for it self......

    never lower your price to beat a low ball price

    Have that happen all the time. Actually when I get them back, they usually get raised to make up for it. :cool:

    Nice thread and posts - I now know I am not a lowballer, because I do not ruin yards, and in fact improve them. I now know that the definition of a lowballer is one that ruins yards.
