So I got this job in a pretty nice neighborhood. The whole House wash and all the flat work came out to be a little over a thousand. Alright cool. So while i’m working, she starts talking about wanting to get rid of ALL her landscaping. It came up that she wasn’t worried about her plant life, So I knocked off a little on the quote, and got her under a thousand, seeing as how id woud save at least an hour not having to pre-soak and rinse the massive landscape surrounding her home.
She asks me If I could remove all the landscaping for her. It’s mainly large bushes and small plant life, no big trees. She even went so far as to tell me her last quote was over $5,000! At first I said “well shoot I’m in the wrong business”. I have never done any landscaping before. I own some nice Gas hedge trimmers and a small chainsaw never used. I told her When i finish up the job( I had to come back because one of her vehicles wouldnt start and I couldnt clean the driveway around it) I could possible give her a quote on the landscaping. Not sure what im getting into, but damn, I feel like I could get away wth $3,000 being fair. shouldnt take no more than 2-3 days with a helper to get all that stuff chopped down and hauled off. Just wondering what you guys think. Take the job? it would fill a week where I couldnt get to my House wash customers, but could make some good dough on the side.
