Well I had one of those days, a client called me at 9:15 tonight to question his bill (Which was sent out on May 1st). Last month I met with the husband and wife to adress their needs for this season. When i walked out I had my hands full (I filled two pages with work to be done). After an estimate was worked up the homeowners ok all the work. These have been my cleints for 4 seasons now and all this work has been done each of those paast 4 seasons. Afew weeks ago I recieved a check for $680 for the following work - Weed, Edge and Mulch 17 trees, 6 flowerbeds (3 - were the whole length of the house(Full size single family house) by 8-12 ft deep, the other 3 were about 16 x 8), and then tear up grass around the A/C units concrete slab and extend a flowerbed to cover this area (10 x 8).The work took 2 labors 8 1/2 hrs to complete, supplies, labor etc the total price was $680.00. This total was $86.00 more then the cost for the same project the last 3 years. Tonight the homeowners complained that the bill is to high. My estimate that they OKed was 650.00. Then I also completed that month and billed for - Prep and applying grass seed to a 45ft x 60ft area in their backyard, applying Fertilizer to the hole yard, spray and clean mold off of the side of the house (10x16 area). I had one labor on the job and it took 2 hours to complete the work and charged $220.00. Then they also got at the sametime a bill for April's grass cutting $180.00 Now tonight the owner (Husband) is complaining that a "Thousand dollars is to much for that little bite of yard work" What do you guys on here think? Im charging $45 an hour for one person, $65 for a second person (I pay the second labor $10-15 an hr). I dont think my prices are to high, there a little low for this area. This has been a good client up until this year and now its nickle and dime this and that. Now there is more work that they want done but Im now a little worried about starting the others jobs. Im at a lost as what to do, Should I turn down the rest of the work? Not agree to do these jobs next year? Im just not sure, id hate to loss this money but is it worth going thought this again?
