    Besides being labeled as a scrub, what happens to the guy who whores down his price that he buys a neighborhood? Yeah, his rates are low, but his density goes up. Instead of a single guy doing, say, 10 lawns per day, he can get 15-20 done because he rides his jobs are on top of each other.

    Thoughts?

    but if you could group lawns close and tight then your travel times or lack there of , could allow you to knock a few bucks off. My dream.... drop and pick up loading ramps once a day :D

    10 lawns for $30 versus 15 lawns for $20 bucks. You do the math, but I am the one making $30. Why work harder than you already do to make the same amount of money? JMO

    You will need my address Toy 2. I will gladly pay your price, can I please have you mow every Wed, that is my light day. That way I can really get my $17.99 worth by being able to watch you in action from my lawn chair on my deck. PS., I am kind of picky about the weed eating and edging please.
    Thanks, Signed, Reliable
