    new roof, new windows all around, new aluminum siding, built in pool........"$32 for the grasscut? no, i'm sorry, that is just too much...." :dizzy: :dizzy: her lawn was beautiful when i did it a few yrs back. i got rid of her. she had a few others, the crabgrass and weeds now make up at least 40% of the lawn, and you can't even see the edge of the walkways anymore. i was charging $27 4 yrs ago. she asked me back, and i gave her the new prices, she damn near fainted. billybob was doin it for 25, and made a disaster out of it. so she spends about 50 grand on home improvements, but $32 is too much for the grass. i explained to her that having that beautiful house, and crappy lawn, is kinda like wearing a tuxedo with sneakers. amazing. she'll be back......@$35

    We know , we know.....they ALLLLLL COME BACK. We get it already. The question you have to ask yourself is......why do you lose them to begin with?

    Probably because Mr. Part timer with a pick up and a walk behind in the back, cut his price by $5.00 and she jumped all over it....do they still install aluminum siding ;)
