I think part of the learning curve of a new business is to bid lower than you should just to get the job. After getting burned a few times you quickly learn.

Low balling in lawn care is nothing new. Generally the guys doing it so cheap are desperate for customers. When they finally know their operating costs they will either raise their prices or get out of the biz.
