The other day I quoted a client on several different landscaping jobs such as trimming shrubs, hedges, transplanting 2 smaller trees, pruning, etc. I gave him a rate of 25.00 per hour for all of these jobs because it was a job I wanted and money was waiting to be made. This was a good price in my opinion, but he said I have no concept of money. He continued by saying his neighbor doesn't even make 25 dollars an hour and makes a nice living. He also said major landscaping companies don't even charge that price. I know companies charge around 40-45 dollars an hour for shrub/hedge trimming around here. I told him I have a lot of money invested and things to pay for, plus I have to make a living off of the money I'm making. I lost the job of cutting his lawn which he said I did a nice job, and I didn't get the landscaping job. This guy is a retired orthopedic doctor!!! I'm sure this has happened to some of you guys out there. What I was wondering was what are some of the responses you gave from this happening?
