Today I went to give an estimate for a neighbor of an existing customer. It is a small property 5000 sq ft minus house and drive. I told the lady $20 my minimum charge. She said the guy who cut it last year only charge $11. I told her I wouldn't even try to compete with that price. She thought the other guy was cheap. I have been cutting lawns on that street for 12 years and started out at $15 I have 5 other lawns on the street the other guy has only one. After talking to the lady for a while she told me who the other guy was. I know him to see he lives a block and a half away from me. Him and his son each have a truck trailer and newer equipment. I feel like smacking this guy in the head and telling him he is an idiot for charging so cheap. On the other hand I could sub lawns out to him and make good money for doing nothing. I could also tell him what he should be charging and tell him about lawnsite to educate the jerk. What would you do?
