I give estimates and people tell me "no thanks, we got a cheaper quote then that from someone else". What I want to know is how do these companies survive or make any money at all? I dont think that I am supper expensive but I"m not the cheapest and Im proud of it. Everything in the world getting more expensive. My bowing lane in town just went from 7 bucks to 10. yea a 30% increase. I just paid $3.70 for diesel, and thats going nowhere but up. Its getting more expensive to live and run a company. So I just hope the green industry is ready to keep up with rising prices. So if people want work done they better be ready to pay for it. Im not greedy, just would rather live comfortably then be scrapping by. Landscaping is hard work! Charge for it! We EARN that money.
