This morning I was doing a complete shrub and cleanup for a new client. I have been trying to get in this area, middle class nice house but not mansions. The average working person in other words thats does not mine paying you what your worth.While I was weedeating the ditch a lady pulls up in a late model caddyand ask me do I cut lawns? Tell her sure how can I help you? She then tells me she is looking for real cheap lawn care. I tell her Im not cheap but not expensive either. She tells me her yard is small and I should be able to mow it for 10 bucks. I reared back and laughed loudly (I know I should not have but cant help it). I told her that the minimum charge will be 50 bucks (I did not want her for a new PITA) and she floored the caddy and blasted off like I had mooned her! The yard I was doing took about 2.5 hours and I charged them 140 bucks and they did not complain a bit. These are the kind of clients I want. They had just moved here from Maryland and thought I was cheap on my pricing . LOL Send me some more Northern folks!
