Alot my of income is servicing other lawn care guys. Its very lucrative.
Might be something to think about? I know I was not too impressed with the amount of supply yards down where my inlaws are, or nurseries for that matter either. I think the only decent one was a tractor supply, and looked like they were very limited.

I do agree that the market is just flooded with lowballers and new guys more and more. I opened up the yellowpages the other day and found 4 pages of new ads from companies I have never heard of before. I couldn't believe it. Theres a handful of guys that help each other out, but the amount of unlicensed guys is incredible.

my mow and blow are minimum $35/accounts, $140+ a month. $60/month difference, i still dont see the profit. $4k a month doesnt even cover fixed monthly bills. clearly your not factoring in retirment, equiptment replacement, etc into your prices, which is probalby why you want out
