Trimming Nightmare

I've got a restaurant that use to take 2 men 1 hour to cut. Big mower, 21" mower and trimming. Its a long story, but the county made them beautify the area. They planted over 300 trees and shrubs with out concern of the existing plants. Its a mess! It now takes 2 men 1.5 hours to cut. 25% big mower, 25% 21" mower and 50% trimming. I did raise the price 50%.

I would raise the price too! I've got a lawn with 25 or so and I thought that was bad! Why did the county make them "beautify" it? It was already beautiful after you got done mowin' it! Keep up the good work.

ooh ooh ooh .... bushes i like bushes they cost more to maintain than grass just not as often ,but not everyone can trim bushes correctly..........raise your price to compliment the extra time it take to mow and for the SPECIALIZED service of the bushes and trees.

Probably looked great on the blueprints. I bet the office boy who made them never actually visited the jobsite.
