Look at the industry - every company is merging or being bought out buy another company. Husky buying redmax - toro/exmark. Simplicity - ariens. List goes on. Do we have professional's talk to the local competitor and talk about a merge deal to enhance ourselves, the company and better service to the client? How many "mowing crews" or landscape crews can keep going at the rate there and every year see a few more "new" biz start ups. Lower price, bad work, etc. I know one guys who is in the maintaince work for all commercial. Landscape, mow, spray, snow removal. He was tired of the lossing out to cheaper bids so he became a dealer of exmark and now sells to the competiton and still maintains the commercial accounts.
