Nobody cares about quality or if you're insured any more. The customers just want the cheapscape guy that shows up with 3 men doing all the neighbors houses. The lawn maintenance business is really not proffitable unless you are a high volume, super efficient machine, & that I am not.

I totally disagree with this. I'm small time. I have more then enough work. I have a hard time keeping up at times. I don't have a high volume of customers. The ones I do have all pay very well though.
