So, in a nutshell, landscaping pays better per hour over full commercial grounds work, but the ground work is steady income. A conundrum to say the least, but as long as I keep balance, I'll be OK.

I'm in the same boat, we have offered specialty services only such as irrigation, lighting and construction. But nest year we will be adding maintenance, not only for the regular source of revenue, but also to keep us as the only people on the property.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!
