I only had about seven accounts, wich is nothing. Wanted alot more this year. Did yellow page advertising, got a few calls. Out of fifteen estimates got zero, so I'm not wasting my time doing the seven that I do have. There hasn't been a problem getting calls but just not landing them. And before you experts say what about your quality of work or your prices. I haven't any complaints about service. The seven that I did have I lost 3. One yard was 1.25 acres. I was doing it for 50 reasonable right. Got a call a day before I was going out there I've got some one else to do it for 35. Not easy mowing either, back yard is like a mountain. She stayed on the line trying to see if I would come down to 35. I told her thanks but if any thing I'll have to be higher than 50 due to inflation. I mean I deserve a raise don't I. That's how it's been this year. My estimates have gone the same way, somebody else going well below market value for a yard. If I wanted to lowball the competition, I could of had 15 to 20 yards by now. Wich by no means is alot. But I'm not riding around town 2.30 a gallon doing yards below market value. But it's nice getting those checks at the end of the month too. I'm just glad the bobcat work and the grading has picked up tremendously. I here alot of people crying about lowballers, and it gets annoying to here. But was wondering if anybody else was in a simaler situation with mowing and is it harder these days for you guys to get quality yards at a fair price. In a way I'm relieved I can concentrate now on something I enjoy doing alot more. But just thinks it's shitty the way the market is.
