Have any of you ever actually turned down a job because the site was too difficult? I went to an estimate the other day, and the job was pretty much closed within 30 seconds of my getting out of the truck. The client and his wife had been wanting a quality landscape lighting system, and told me that they had decided to buy it for themselves for Christmas. As far as sales calls go, it just doesn't get any better than this! The problem after evaluating the work site, however, is that the entire property was riddled with huge roots systems growing across the entire surface of the yard. I'm not talking about the occasional root either. Almost every square inch of this yard, both front and back, was covered with roots so bad that I wanted to just leave and tell them that I could not be of service to them. Instead of turning it down, I thought I would just cover myself and make it worth my time in the event that I made the sale. I gave them my estimate which was about double what I would normally charge, and hoped (in the back of my mind) that they would just turn me down. I get the feeling they are going to call me back, and I really don't want to take on this job. Have any of you ever encountered a situation like this? I know James has mentioned difficult installs on forrest floors and in sheer rock beds, but these root systems are in their front yard and the lot is very small. To add to this dilemma, there are three drive-ways that will need to be encountered. One circular drive, and then another going straight into the front entrance garage. I could actually see large roots growing through the expansion joints, so laying the wire here is not an option.
