I was watching Ask this old house yesterday. The segment involved a homeowner taking on the new task of managing his own lawn.

He told Roger is costs $260/mo to cut the grass. Roger responded something to the effect, "That's not how I see it, I see 3 fully insured professionals managing your landscape. That money pays for insurance, fuel, supplies, equip..."

He covered the industry well with that statement.

But he didn't mention was the 15 year old that can do it for 50 dollars.
