Hi, I need your guys help and opinions. I have to get some primary research along with find secondary articles. Part of my primary research is to interview two local companies. The other part is this survey. The research is for a report on business reinvestment, and I am trying to highlight the lawn and landscape business in the research and report. If you would please take a few minutes to answer the following questions and if you want post any comments regarding the topic. Even if you send it to me via pm that would be appreciated.

Thank you so much.
