Hire the meanest looking guy to work with you. Change your name to Felons that bust Melons. A nice tagline like we cut more then grass. I bet that guy thinks twice.

Hi Dustin,

Welcome to our forum!

ive even had another company stop and talk to the customer while i was mowing and give them a lower price?

What happened with that situation? How did the customer and you handle that?

Have you considered using some kind of annual lawn care contract (http://www.gopherforum.com/showthread.php?t=7210)? Would that help your situations?
