I know money is tight with a lot of people myself included but this season I think Iv'e heard this line every other estimate. We gave a mowing customer an estimate for a small clean up with 1 yard of mulch installed for just under $200's, "too expensive". We just gave another estimate for mulch and cutting new flower bed edges, about 4hrs worth of work. The estimate came to $610.00 including materials. This was an older couple (nice people) very nice house but after I explained to them everything I thought here it comes, and I was right "oh boy we're on a "fixed income" I don't know". I called back with a follow up call as usual for us, and she said they went with another company for $100.00 cheaper but with no edging. Tried to explain to her why our estimate was so much different but to no success. We usually are about $45-$55.00/yd of mulch delivered and spread this other company must be in the $70's/yrd and more power to them but I don't get people some times.
