i have been cutting this house for 4 years now. $25 a cut, every other week. we do everything, clean ups, fertilizer applications, thatching, trimming... etc. we did sod last year, in the beginning of the year. at the time they said they wanted to to do alot of planting in the back, weeping cherries, arbs., etc a month ago, they asked me to design a layout, prices etc, i was going over some of my ideas with them, which they liked, then she goes on to tell me, the she thinks she should let me know that she is getting other prices from other landscapers for this very job, and got some already... does that go against proper ettiquette or is it just me? i sat with it for a day or 2 and told her to give it to the other guys. i found it insulting, and debating making a call to just cancel the service altogether. am i over reacting, or would you bid on work at property you are maintaining at the moment. picture showing up to cut the grass, and there's some company making a nice little bundle that you should have been entitled to. i'm going to be more pissed if its my design i see back there..
