    Recently finished construction sites are notorious for hitting stuff like bricks, wood, rebar, chunks of concrete, hammers, rocks, and whatever else you can think of

    You are lucky that you are getting paid, builders are bad for paying.

    i agree...2600/month for 60 properties seems incredibly cheap. also you need to consider a few things when a potential customer asks you to match the previous companies price. why is that company no longer servicing the property/properties? is the price they're telling you accurate/honest? I've been told that the previous lco was servicing properties on a few occasions and the prices were sometimes less than half what my rate would have been. mowing is competitive in my area so i find it unlikely. they were telling the truth. i wouldn't be surprised if that was the case in you're current situation. the bottom line is this- you need to turn a profit. don't work for less than you feel is profitable and worth you're time.
