2013 Grass Cuts

Has anybody received clear direction on what HUD is paying for 2013 Grass? Are they continuing with the extension of ML 2008-31 or are they now going to enforce 2010-18 crap pricing?

If you work for Safeguard they decided to make up their own guidelines this year.

They've always been like that.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Me too, 2008 was paid in 2012 which is a huge difference from what is about to go down... Are you saying you have received 2008 pricing for the upcoming 2013 seaon from a national in writing that would be huge!?

I meant they always play by their own rules.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Things are getting different. So I got hit with a bunch of extra grass cuts. Now I know everybody lowballing with 20.00 cuts.
I spoke to a landscaper I know and he charges 25.00 for a 50 x100 lot. So I told him that if he wanted extra work I would give him cuts. All he had to do was take photos. No uploading just drop the camera off on way home. I offered 25.00 like he us getting and 45.00 for up to 15k lot, also in his range
Go figure because he needed 8 photos he wanted and extra 15.00 per cut. WTF?

I haven't recieved any notice on price change. I know 5 Bros asked us to bid grass rates probably to have us contractors cut our own throats while clawing for work.

The brothers have done that for years. I went HUD less discount.

They gave me enough to make a $300 6 hr route.
