The sun rising this morning, on a whole new situation.
The price we thought we were paying per hour for the whole crew of three workers was actually the price he was quoting for ONE person ... which means that Monday actually cost us three times what we thought it did. This is highway robbery and we would never have agreed to this price if we had understood the full amount.
The landscaper didn't make his terms clear, and we didn't ask him to be more specific. We accepted his oral quote on good recommendation from someone we trust ... not knowing that it would bite us in the butt like this. We will be calling him later today to see if we can get the price reduced. Needless to say, this man will NOT be working here again ... my pockets are not that deep. In fact, my pockets are pretty nearly empty at this point.
Lesson learned: Get a written quote from now on. I usually do this, but I made an exception in this case. Never again!
Now I have to get busy and clear my own weeds.
Anyone interested in a work party? I'll feed ya.
