and this...

"I believe that chemicals and power tools have no place in a healthy garden."

Unreal. So many people are unrealistic with what they think a service should cost.

Didn't know it was possible for someone to just organically grow produce on an unknown plot...interesting.

I also saw a guy yesterday with an old beat up truck and an old as dirt trailer, and he had two diesel kubota zero turns. Not saying I know everything about how to run a business but I think I would have upgraded my truck or trailer before adding a second before expensive mower.

Yeah in my area I have seen them working out of their car with a push mower sticking out of the trunk. Cheap hires just looking for a quick buck!

Came across this on craiglist today

lawn care mowing $20.00 - $20 (Dillsburg/mechanicsburg)
Looking for mowing/landscape jobs.. Mowing starting at $2.00 a yard. Also mulching,trimming,general clean up also call XXX-XXX-XXXX

Mowing from $2-$20 ARE YOU SERIOUS? That is beyond lowballing, have fun making zero profit.

These ad's are hilarious. All the typo's are crazy.


Here is one:

Lawn mowing labor, $35 (Great Falls)

Mow my lawn using my Z turn mower. Prior experience necessary. Takes about 2.5 hours.

•Location: Great Falls
•it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
•Compensation: $35


This moron has been trying to get someone to do this for 3 weeks now.
