    ''Circle of trust?" sounds more like a triangle of lies.

    What is up with the low balling this year. Come on this is redicilious, 1 acre lots for $20. Commerical jobs for $35 that the fert guys are charging $190 a app, Taco Bell in Wixom just got a bid to cut the lawn for $25 and plow it for $45. What the heck.

    LOL. You getting them, too. One up this way put flyers in mailboxes with a price of $25 for mowing lawn on 1/2 acre lot. Don't even talk with the homeowner. Just leave a price. But hey, they'll even apply a Scotts 4 step, powerwash your deck, and paint your house, too. I looked them up on MDA website - not even licensed!

    A one acre for $20?! This is only my second year here in business but I sure don't lowball. Heck, I lose business myself to lowballers, and I'm the new guy! I bid half acre lots at double that.
    Edit: Well I shouldn't say double per say, I should say I price accordingly to what the job requires. I had a flyer put in my box for "15 Buck Cuts", and I live on a half acre lot. How do I try to establish myself off of quality and not price when Joe Blow will roll up in a station wagon for $10 bucks on a job that should cost $50. Oh well, way of the world these days.
