I will say it does seem to be worse the past 5 years or so.

Yes, the nationals and others are just as guilty as solo guys who don't know their costs and don't care.

This is a result of turning services into a commodity. Or the Walmartization of the service industry.

You won't stop it. There is no way to stop it.
Yep. There are lowballers in many industries, not just lawncare. It is pointless to worry about it. I was underbid on a couple mulch jobs this year, I just moved on to the next one.
