part of it is their workers. they aren't always the brightest people in the world. i can't imagine hiring anyone to help me out. it seems like the scum of the earth would be all that was interested.
i guess there is this stigma on the lawn industry that if you mow lawns that means you smoke, drink beer, never shave, and dress like a homeless person???
they just can't get it through their heads that a lawn person is the same as a doctor, lawyer, teacher, engineer, or any other person in the world.
some people just aren't in touch with reality. they think cutting grass is something a kid does for a summer job. they don't realize it's a legitimate career.
