I started the business 9/2009 started working in this feild in 1995.
Business is ok but not great, finding it hard to get new customers with so
much competition. Were in FL. and have people here doing lawns for $13-$19
things will get better, because there price is cheap and so is the quality of there work.

Welcome to our forum!

What kinds of things have you found yourself doing to combat cheap competitors? Have you started offering other higher profit services?

I started fertilization programs, plus thanks to the forum I add 30% to all estimates, and do a little extra on all maintenance customers proprties

Oh that is fantastic! What made you decide to add 30%? Also was this simply an increase in price because you were bidding too low or were you adding more services with that new price?
