All thought I've gotten several complements on our lawn care thats about as far as it gets. If it doesn't pick up a little more next year I may have to throw in the towel.

If there are other lcos making it work, it likely has a lot to do with reputation gained over time. The cheap guys are not putting them out. Your work looks good and you should hang on if you can financially. If you can't try to find out all you can about the winning lcos or even get a job with one of them.
