    Here is what I have been offered by another lco.
    Ten lawns that pay $28 per cut. I get $20 and he gets $8.
    Does this sound like a fair deal? Would you cut lawns for $20? These lawns are close together, and their is no cost for advertising. I know what I think of this deal, but wanted to hear some other opinions.

    if YOU would cut these lawns for $20 and they are next to eachother i would do it. But if you would charge over $25 i would say no thanks. Dont worry about what he is charging, im really suprised he told you actually kindof a dumb move on his part

    I would bid them at $25 or more.
