I ran into a neighbor who saw me loading my equipment the other day and after a brief conversation about what I do and what I charge, he told me about a person who had come to his door and asked to mow the lawn. This was a person in greasy cut off shorts, long unkept hair, unshaven and upon opening the door, the dude said to my neighbor, "Yew want yer grass cut, or what?" So the neighbor tells him go ahead for $15 (small yard). Well dude-man scalped the yard big-time. I told the neighbor that I could help him with some amendments and proper mowing it will look better in 3 weeks to a month. So scrub dude got me business. They aren't so bad after all, a professional lawn & garden man/company actually prospers from a lot of people doing it badly. Opinions?
