I picked up a new client today, even I was surprised. The house was not in that bad of shape but he was undergoing his 3rd mini renovation in the last 10 years the same amount of time head employed his last gardener. While I was making notes to prepare his bid he asked for a "ballpark" I did some quick math and said it was going to be at least mid 700 probably higher. He about fell over and said he had no idea, he had been paying 220 for the last 10 years I said well you should keep him you are getting a hell of a bargain. Long story short I completed my bid brought it back presented it it was 926 per month he said Ok I don't want to keep redoing the landscape every 3-4 years. I know this is not typical but I was just happy to squash a lowballer for a change and find a client that realizes the value for the service we provide.
