$25 Initial grass cut anything under 1 acre

Just received a vendor packet.
They want to pay $25 for initial cut across the board for any property under 1 acre. Wow I wonder how much they are getting?

I still can't believe people with this nonsense of 20 and 25 cuts. I will say that when we do our routes we are seeing a lot and I mean a lot of properties with 3 feet and higher grass.
Some company called me to offer grass cuts. 1 acre for a whopping 35.00. Told them we get 175 for and acre. Silence and then they said that I was wrong with my pricing. Uh no you are the one that is wrong lol.

Honestly I think both prices are crazy when you look at it from the outside. I honestly believe that a 1 acre cut is worth about $75 assuming it's just a cut, and I a willing to do it for that any day. The problem comes when they want you to do an inspection spend an hour on paperwork and then you have about a 50/50 chance of even getting paid. That makes your $175 a lot more realistic. Basically the nationals did this to themselves and they think the way to fix it is to lower pay?

Here is your $25 recut. This was done by a vendor for safeguard. We could have done the QC from the truck. No photoshop in the world can fix that.
