Man this year will be tuff. I have around 29 stops. A bunch of cuts clean ups etc. This year about 5 of my regular spring clean ups I have lost due to price cutting. I already had 3 more customers call me up and ask if my rates would go up. I can't believe some homeowners don't check for insurance or anything? I pay my guys 18 per hr and charge them out @ 28.00. But they are all legal. How do I survive?
