Theres plenty to go around but when they loose contracts and you come up on some of them, its just a pain to convince people to pay more like they had been previously before the landscaper that priced it low came in.
There are a few companies in our area that have a strategy to build the business and then sell. So as long as they meet payroll they are fine.
To them they need customers and a lot of them. One company sold out then came back in 7 years and building business again.
