Here's the deal, this customer called me last fall and I di a clean-up for her. She liked the work and the price ($180 for 3.5 hours of work, leaves left on wooded end of property). I do a light spring clean up for her and again she is satisfied with the work and price. I've mowed here lawn 4 times so far this season (every 2 weeks) and she loved the way it looked. She asks me to install a Dwarf alberta spruce tree, a 4-6 foot one and to remove an old patch of evergreen groun cover that is dead and install a new patch. I normally always get 100% of the material money up front but this time, I did not. I do the work, haul the old groundcover away and return later the same day to mow the lawn. I left her an invoice and she called me yesterday morning and asked for further explanation of the bill. I return her phone call and explain the charges. She says ok and that she will put a check in the mail for me. I charged her $166 for the whole deal minus a 10% discount for a referall that I did work for. Dwarf spruce: $55.00 installed (cost me 39.95+tax) 2 ground cover plants $ 22.00 each installed (cost me 18.65 each + tax) Haul away of the old ground cover and spruce tree $35.00 Mow lawn $32.00 I got a call from her this morning saying that she sent me a check but will no longer need my outrageously priced services anylonger. My prices have always been very compettitive with other local lco's. I'm not to dissapointed because she was a bit out of the way for me and no one else in the neighboor hood would hire me. I thought it was funny with the outrageous price thing and will now go spend the time I would have used on her property on someone who is one the route already! Just curious, do you hink I over priced the job?
