Hey everyone, I'm located in toronto, Canada. Markham area for those who know. This is my first season. I started late, in june. I'm taking my time, I don't have any huge expectations. I plan on growing slowly. I'm sticking to residentials, and am going to plow res's only this coming winter. And next year I'll start to take on a few commercials. I have 4 accounts right now. Anyways.. I had an estimate today. I measured her lawn, and it was 2800 sq ft in the back, and 700sq ft in the front. Total of 3500sqft. I quoted her 50 bucks for first cut front and back ( overgrown). and then 45 bucks every 10 days, seeing how its late in the season. She turns around and tells me its too much. "old guy was doing it for $30 a week, but she can't find him. and that her mother has someone who is doing lawns for $50 a month, its just a matter of getting in touch with him". Anyways she took my card and said she'll talk to her husband. I didn't budge. Do I sound reasonable? Gas is 1.25 a litre right now and it isn't a guarantee to stay that way. plus i'm legit with insurance. this **** ain't cheap!
