    Simple question - Do you think the 2008 season will be better or worse than 2007?

    With a deep recession seeming inevitable, I think the big time lawn care guys will be thinned out, and I think if a lot of people end up losing jobs, that every guy with a mower, trailer, and a truck will be out undercutting all the big guys. I hate to be pessimistic, but If that recession hits look out... but let's hope I'm wrong.

    This winter seemed to have thinned out a lot of companies that popped up due to the heavy rainfall here last year. I plan on getting my name out there more and went ahead and got my irrigation license. If everyone starts mowing, i can fall back on doing sprinkler repairs, at least with that, you have to have a state license to work on them.
