Yeah Ive watched a few of those. They are pretty boring. They had one where they were playing the "lawn care Olympics". They had a trimmer toss, and a game where they had to do spin around like 10 times on a ztr, and then do an obstacle course.

Being solo and mowing a few lawns is easy. Running a fair sized business is not and takes a lot knowledge in many areas to succeed.

Well if you want troubles do a show like mowing wars. Osha, DOT and every known group to man would be calling you. Wrecker drivers now stating Lizard show now makes everyone want to fight. Pawn shops now have people waking in saying call a friend I know it is worth this. When the truth of it, most of all of it is made up.
