I was wondering how many of you guys have clients with better yards than your own?
all of their yards are better :/
Lol my yard is the worst one on the block all the last to get cut. Wife even threatned to hire a service lol.
Yeah I mean, there are no customers whose yard looks as bad as mine because:
- Paid Customer yards are number one priority - Mine is a freebie.
- My yard gets cut with my retired, 1995 52" sfs proline - The oldest wb, easily has 5000 yards gone by, shows it and feels it, too. Blade sharpening? What, for my yard? Whatever blades were on there last time, they're still good.
i take pride in my lawn. it does not take that much time to get you lawm lookn good.
i'm not anal about my lawn but yes i would say my lawn looks better than my clients.
My customers don't understand the concept of watering which in my book is the most important thing for a lawn. A customer could give me a blank check and tell me to do everything possible to their lawn, but if they do not water it isn't going to help in my areas drought. The nice lawns are due to the homeowners effort to water and has little to do with my work. Some of the nicest lawns in the area are from retired homeowners that take pride in their lawn. Most people that hire a service just want it cut and could care less about putting any effort in on their part.
My point is.... It takes more then a lawn care company to have a nice lawn.
My lawn was always the last to get cut. I finally had to put it on the schedule just like any other customer. I have employee's mowing it paying regular wages.
Mine's the last to get cut and looks like hell. I don't pay myself.
i call it self pride
Mine is mowed on Thursday, just like the rest in the area, if you add it to your list, it becomes another yard...
