Yeah Josh, I am slowly but surely getting stuff going together. Sold a couple decent mulch jobs and a lawn renovation so far. No calls at all about lawn maintenance so far. Too many lowballing grass cutters. I think I am gonna put my focus more into design/install projects. Screw this grass cutting

Phone keeps ringing, just trying to keep up with all the calls. Then trying to meet with them and work at the same time. FUN FUN

I shouldnt have put the plow on at all. It was a waste of time. Just cold and cloudy today, nothing else. That will be cool having the beast on the road!! My phone is comming alive again, slowly.

..That $10 Lake County stuff is not cool. I'm just east of that in Ashtabula county and if that crap spreads this way I'm screwed. 90% of my customers are seniors.....and none of em are at $10 LOL

How can anyone (that pays taxes, insurance, etc) possibly do that? I suppose with a 4cyl ranger and a cheap pushmower you could easily cut 4-6 postage stamp places an hour. just 3hrs a day of those could get ya $180. Maybe that kind of math is what a bunch of potential lowballers look at; and not so much the fulltime guys. I don't know. I don't like it anyway I look at it though. Most of my places are 1/2 acre - 2 acres and how could anyone do that for $10???

I really feel for the guys that invest everything and your livelihood depends on a decent and fair maintenance market. Even though this is part-time for me and teaching is my main income; I still don't want to see the $ and time I've invested go down the tubes. I'm optimistic though and hope this is just a gimmick that won't stick.

Well, lets hope for your sake it doesnt come your way!!! It has hurt us already, and it has only begun. I dont know how they do it with the price of gas sky high and the cost of equipment, etc. They would be screwed if a machine went down. I give up on lawn maint. I am gonna try harder for design/install projects instead cause that is where the money will be at!! Or I am gonna move!!

I would like more mowing since I spent a buttload of money on my new mower and crap. But I think design/install is just gonna be the way to roll!!

If you bid them right the landscaping will pay all that stuff off. Mowing is good money too. Just my .02 worth.
