Raymow made the bulk of his money doing overpriced installs for all the corrupt builders. They were part of the whole real estate nightmare here. Like everyone else he pumped the money out of the area and now he is gone.

Well pricing is tricky you get some areas where you can name your price but other areas are so low its stupid. People out there doing work for next to nothing, I can't compete with 50 and 60 a month service. Business is alright could be better though.

But if the same opportunity presented itself would you turn it down?

no every one deserves lawn service so I'm sure we could work something out.

Not sure but has anyone noticed that it is cold as f8ck out there? Nothing to mow - spending this week driving by most properties and a couple of small irrigation jobs - not sure if I am happy or not about the recent cold snaps. It is nice that I am at home - but this is two years in a row - got to wonder if customers are going to start questioning the need for year around lawn care if we keep getting these freezes that halt every things growth!
