    I was driving around my block looking at some of my accounts and i SAW a flier nailed to the power line post. It said MOWE,TRIM,AND BLOW FRONT AND BACK $20.00 I cant believe this crap around my area lawns are 30-35 just to start. I have gotten to the point to where I wont get my mower down for no less then 35.00. How the hell can two guy make any money? I can see if they cut a crap load of yards but still they cant be making that much. With the price of gas and Im sure they have crap for equipment but it still cost money. It makes me so pissed due to the fact that the people in my area see this and expect me to meet or beat that price. Dont get me wrong we all have to start some where but damm dont kill your self and other around you in the process. Thanks yall just need to let some steam off.

    could be just someone trying to make quick cash. give them a week or so out in this heat with yards that go to the horizon and gas at 3.50 a gallon and see how long that 20 bucks a yard lasts
