Robert you are right on.The equipment is alot faster and thier are alot more home owners using lawn services.Commercial accounts are doing more detailing .Around here you not only have the weekend worriors but alot of Latino guys that are going into business for themselves. Its alot easier for them to make it since the majority of these guys dont pay taxes or have insurance.They go into the nicer neighborhods and start knocking on doors asking to cut the grass.
