Wow are people just getting cheaper and weirder all at the same time? I gave 4 estimates today for lawn care and the one lady I have already been to last year. She said her "guy" that does it forgot to spread the store bought fertelizer she bought for him to do it with. He's a lowballer to the tee! charges $15.00 for a lawn that is all of 3/4 of an acre. Long story short she expected me to do that for free, lay down mulch for free, (oh but she would buy some mulch), and mow for less than or at least keep that price. Customer #2 8 decent sized flower beds haven't been weeded in over a year or edged, leaves blown under all plants and shrubs. I told her it would take 4 guys probably at least 6-7 hrs and gave her a price, and her eyes were the size of quarters and said why so much? I then explained to her AGAIN why it the price was what it was. I am really begining to think this is the only industry where people seriously think we work for peanuts. Customer #3 and #4 were well you guessed it about the same. Customer #4 wanted mulch delivered and just dumped into flowerbeds around the entire house I told her she is only saving abou6-7 dollars per yard by not having us spread it. She said thats ok whats the price? I am $45.00/ yard of mulch spread and thats cheap! Of course she flipped out about the 240.00 price. What the heck do people think?
