There is one thing I have discovered and found amazing at the same time. Waycross and Blackshear are only 9 miles apart. Most of the folks in Waycross (except the rich area) are ticky about their yards and will pay. In Blackshear I have NEVER kept a yard more than 3 months. This week I picked up 3 in Blackshear that wanted it done "cheap" no weedeating,edging, or blowing off the driveway. I mowed all 3 wide open, left bahai stalks standing everywhere, grass around the house and drive 2 feet tall, large clumps of grass turds in the yard, stuff that I would have NEVER done before, and the clients were happy! I was blown away and ashamed of the work I done on these yards. Oh yeah, 2 were 40 and one was 35 and all 3 took about an hour to mow.I know this is not a dollar a minute but my area if you get 30 and hour you are doing great. One lady told me her husband would weedeat and the other said they would use a push mower to trim. I quoted 2 at 65 for complete service and the 35 one at 55 for complete but they wanted "cheap".and by gawd they got cheap! I posted a thread awhile back about cutting a yard once a month (3.5 acres) for 200 and I did it 3 times and lost it to a cheaper service and the SOB is one of the richest folks in Blackshear and has a half million dollar house. I am changing some of my polocies to servive and it has gotten where it does not bother me as bad to do work like this for the cheapskapes. Just cant believe 9 miles makes that much difference.
