How can they even cover their overhead with prices like that?
I would guess volume.

I did this with a friend of mine for a couple months between jobs. We were contracted by his friend to cut bank owned homes as well as a few of his friends/family homes. Charge was $30, we seen $20 per lawn. At one point, we were cutting 160 lawns a week, just two guys. Not a single lawn was over an acre, majority were in Flint/Burton/Davison area, stretching down into Clarkston. That was about $3k a week before paying me and gas.

During our busiest point, we worked basically sun up to sun down, and about 100 or more of these lawns were little 1/4 acre or less lots. We never had a complaint of quality.
