In my mailbox today was a flier for lawn service and prices based on lot size (1/4, 1/3, 1/2, and 3/4 acre), and the prices were so low, I actually considered calling them. They claim to charge only $25 for cutting, trimming, and blowing 1/2 acre. The way I see it is, instead of me cutting mine for a loss, I can pay them, and use the time I gained to earn revenue at another location. This also ties them up in a $25 job. I'm just being facetious, but it really pisses me off, since I charge more than that. When people publish blanket prices on services, people expect everyone to charge that way. Never mind that some yards (like mine) are trimming and clean-up (I have a pool) pains in the a**. I wouldn't touch a yard like mine for less than $45. It's almost worth it to pay them to do my yard. Philosophically, it just seems wrong for someone else to cut my yard. What will my neighbors think? I'd never be happy with the results. Besides, wouldn't it be funding the competition (or would it be speeding up his demise)? What do you folks think?
