    1/4 acre of clover and weeds,chain link fence, pea gravel around above ground pool[trimming hazard], hill in the back is a combo of weeds and 1/2 azzed mulch job by homeowners cousin, rough ground from rotting tree roots, exposed wires around AC unit, dog mess, and good ole' poison ivy. It was my 1st lawn in this neighborhood and I keep it because it is still profitable based on price. I also cut many lawns on this street. The customers are great people and he originally helped me get lawns on the street. Over the years he has asked me prices for landscaping and improving his yard. I learned my lesson because he would just hire his drug addict cousin to do the labor and it always looked like sh$%. The lawn still only takes 20min. but it looks crappy even when its done.

    When I was brand new (and hungry) in the biz I took on a yard that was on about a 45 degree slope. It was totally overgrown with crap/trash all through the yard. It took me forever to do it. I finally fired the guy...once I got a little wiser.
