Hello from the Oregon coast, Lincoln city, OR. Looking for others in the area, or in state to discuss Lawn Care with.

This year was terrible to be quite honest. went from running 2 trucks to running by myself and not even being able to stay busy a 40 hour week. Oh well, theres always next year or if I had it my way getting out of this business would be great too but there arent too many other options out there. I didn't lose a single account due to work quality it was all due to price, people losing their jobs, moving away etc..... oh and one ******* that owned a bunch of my commercial properties that fired me because he was mad at my mom

Oh that sucks man, I hate to hear that, but its happened to all of us, the pricing has been getting so competitive its getting ridiculous, I myself have had to lower my labor rate to obtain some accounts, but still a little profitable but not like it was 3-5 years ago for sure. Yeah its always best to not mix family/friends/acquaintances with business...
