    What do you do if you go out to price a new job and when you arrive you find that the landscape is pourly planned and maintained. For example, plants planted to close, plants in bad locations, too much mulch, too little mulch, sick plants, weeds growing under shrubs, etc. You also find that the lawn has many broadleaf weeds and thin turf.

    What if the homeowner has been doing their own maint.?
    What if they have had someone doing it for them?
    What if it's early summer and crabgrass has allready emerged?

    Keep in mind that you only provide application service. No mowing, pruning, etc. For this customer anyway.
  2. Completely explain the problems and find out what they expect. If you can help them, price your service accordingly, Explaining what you can or can't correct, and give them a realistic expected results
