This year has been a real struggle, so I've hated to let go of some of the lawns that I felt were not worth it, since I have so few customers. I am debating whether to let a big one go, because I have already raised the price on a large corner lot on a hill to $55. It is not the largest lawn I've ever done, but it is currently taking 2.5 hours, partly due to crappy equipment, and since the whole thing is on a hill, it seems like 5 hours, having to do alot of pushing when the self propel on my old John Deere just isn't enough. Then the weedtrimming takes me nearly an hour with my crappy Echo curved shaft, and it seems like I have to stop and replace the line about 300 times or so. I have started to hate this lawn, and if I had more customers I would have dropped it by now, but part of me hates to lose one of the few customers I have, and I wonder if better equipment will make the yard worth it. It's not the customers fault that I have junk for equipment, but I wonder what other services would charge for this lawn. He said he already had 2 services who mowed it once and never came back and I told him I wouldn't simply dissapear, but I really need a larger mower for his lawn and a bigger weedtrimmer. I could realisticaly get a better weedtrimmer, depending on how the winter goes, but I'm nowhere close to a walkbehind with the customer base I have. If you had only a few customers would you still tell him you couldn't continue to do it?
