it's estimate season. what amazes me, is the people who can't afford top level service, but won't settle for a lower level of service. examples are: a lady calls and says her husband died, she lost her job, and she needs service. she's on a tight budget, BUT, she wants a premium package= weekly mowing, scu, bed work, shrubbery trimmed, fert program...and " i need this place kept neat, and weed free!." so i give her prices, she gags. "i told you, my budget is limited." so, i recomend a simple mow + go pkg, with limited fert + weed control. she goes, "o, no, i need this place kept in tip top shape!." well damn, if you're broke, why do u need a top level of service? YOU CAN'T AFFORD IT! another one, tiny lawn, she wants mowing, and the front renovated. i quote her a price, she gasps, "oh, i can't afford that." again, i recomend a simple mow + blow service, spread out over an 8 month payment arrangement, that came out to pennies a month, again, "oh my god, there is no way, i can afford that!." i'm like, "why the hell did u call me????" why do people with no money, request luxery type service? .
