Cash flow is the key thats why we went to credit card only. Only our commercial customers pay by check and we probably have less than 100 residential our older clientel that still get invoiced through usps. But we charge those customers 1.95 to mail the invoice. And believe it or not we get it. Very few have complained. We have had some but bot a lot

Not to bust balls but if your rolling 52k a month in payroll and your website looks like that of a 16 year olds and "home of the 24.95 cut"

Your kinda hard to believe, sounds like b.s to me.

I think they have a terrific website. I think it would be very effective and that is the purpose of a website. They get your attention with the $24.95 and they keep it with the guarantee. They accept all major credit cards, even AmEx. I searched "lawn care Slidell" and they were near the top. All in all my guess is that the guys are running a heck of an operation. I am not so sure that the poster is the brains behind it though.

Actually I am the brains behind the operation . We started it from Scratch . I just like how some people get on here . Talking about things they know nothing about. I kept quite for years on this site but finally decided to speak. Oh and thanks for the compliment . It was BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS TO GET IT TO THIS POINT
