I've been working a subdivision in my area where a lot of new homes are going up. I put doorhangers out 3 weeks ago, and I have been getting calls coming in intermittently. Friday I signed on a new customer and they paid me in advance for the first cut. Well, the next day, some scrubs came to the house and while the owner was out, cut their lawn (half-assed job by the way), left a card in the door, expecting the owner to sign up with them. Fortunately, the customer remained loyal to me. My question is......is this a technique anyone else here would use? Personally, I think cutting someone's lawn without asking first is pretty aggressive, and if they damaged something in the process, I wonder if they would have left a card in the door!!
