I agree 100%, even though I predominantly do maintenance & snow. With that said, I still consider myself skilled. Yes just about anyone can mow a lawn...but efficiency in time (not just moving fast) while doing a great job is part of the skill set. Couple that with the ability to sell and retain customers...yes even lawn maintenance companies can be highly skilled. As fastlane said, landscaping and lawns should not be painted with the same brush.
