They keep saying storms but I cant find them. Just a little light rain and maybeeee a little lightning. Or a down poor for 5 minutes and its done.

Somebody is pricing lawns @ 24.99 in Va. Beach. Not me either. We are at 40. I'm in the process of developing a plan to counter this invasion of lowballing. BTW My name is Dewain Koester owner of Extremely Green Inc. Hope you guys are doing great. Are you'll finding these low pricing people also.

We are at $35.00 min. for a small lawn in a neighborhood within our current route. Out side a neighborhood in route min $50.00. any less will cost me $$. Trying to work my way to 90% commercial work.

I haven't really ran into the low people but Its obviously hurting me this year because I haven't got the calls this year like I always do. I still got my normal people that I do every year but the new people have been few and far between. I went to KW1 to pick up mulch the other day and I couldn't believe there were 10 other companies in there picking up mulch. But its all good in my book competition is healthy plus half of them will be gone mid summer.

Maybe after we all get caught up we could hit lunch sometime. Hope to see you'll around sometime. I drive a cobalt blue 2007 dodge ram 1500 with a hemi. If you guys want to make money growing plants get them from Cold Stream Farm. The trees come to you bareroot and are small but super cheap. Just grow them up and use them in a landscape install or just sell them. I know alot about propagation of various plants and if you want to learn or interested just let me know. I'll help you get started no problem. You guys have a great weekend. Gonna be a long day tommorrow.
