Welcome to the Biz. You need more clients or a smaller coverage area. You will be expected to log 400 miles in a day for 5 recuts IF you allow them to do it to you.

Sound like Cyprexx! If it is I shot them price on each property(go high to have room to come down).They started this the middle of the summer with us. I only keep my lawns in two counties. I will nit do even this a the start of lawn season(found I wasn`t making money)

You go do them and break even if your lucky! It sounds your new to the game, you will need to show them you can do what is needed, when needed. Then request more work. ex. if you had 20 you would be in great shape! We all break even some days, its part of being a business owner! Its the days you loose money you want to avoid!

Recuts in Dec???


You might want to send them a calendar. I'd decline them straight up as dormant.

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.

Grass grows faster here during winters.
