cheap lawn cut

this company had reduced there pay on lawn cut last summer $35! At some point they added more work they would us do while at property!

Here`s message I got!

I need to let you know that I will need to start seeing more than 2 action photos for the lawn services. 2 is inadequate. There are other things to do at a property than mow or use the blower. We also need to see photos of the window sills being brushed clean and around the front door the cobwebs being cleaned away. Please make a note of this going forward.



Only doing lawn for them in county I live in(due to low pay,have to do myself) ,but the bs is getting bad!

I take 4 before photos in the front, 4 in the back and 4 actions (Mow in rear and front, weedeater and edger) Corresponding after's and 2 addresses. I'm in and out of a lawn cut for them in 10-15 minutes.
I don't wipe down the outside (what a joke). The front door cobweb issue should of been resolved when the initial services were completed. If you see cobwebs starting, take 30 seconds and use the blower on it the best you can while blowing near the front door. Easy enough. at $32 you can still make a pretty decent wage. Local residents in my area only pay $20-$30 for routine cuts. If you were to say $40 to them you wont get the account, just saying.
If your doing the work yourself and not subbing it out or hiring a crew, you can make some decent money.

@ $32 - discount - processing time - BS "exterior maid svc" does NOT = "a pretty decent wage"

Don't compare pp/reo to private sector, that's assinine.
