Maryland

Here it is only Feb 26 and we have already had 6 flyers on our mailbox and one business card from another lawn company . All have been from over 10 miles away and all have been latino companies. Looks like another fun year here in our once lovely state . 5 of the 6 offer fert and hardscape work but not one showed a lisence number .

I just have a tractor and bush hog right now. I rent a bobcat and ammbusher when needed. I can't find anywhere to rent a mulcher.

I'm hoping to generate enough business to purchase a skid and mulcher this year

I recieved one yesterday, 20.00 mowings. It was a large local company to. How do you make a profit cutting for 20.00. I have one account I charge 20.00 for, it's a small townhouse. That's alright, I just need to pick up 5-6 more accounts to get me to where I want to be this season.
