    I live in Delaware and see their trucks all the time. A month ago I was mowin a lwan and saw them pull up and 5+ mexicans came out of the trailer. They have a lot of people working on each project, no matter how small it seems. Call em as I see them. By the way I kinda like the 2 tone brown thing they do. Thats just me.

    I see them on mostly very large to large commercial properties here in the beach area and Chesapeak. Ive never seen them on a residential property, just dont think it would pay off for them in my area for the simple reason that there are just tooooo many 1 or 2 truck operations around our area that do so much better work than they do.

    I wouldn't worry about them. They won't touch residential. At least they didn't when I worked there. Also, as long as you do good work you'll be able to compete. IMO they worry more about the bottom line than quality. At least thats how it works in certain branches.

    The same reason UPS trucks are brown.

    Brickman is also in Raleigh/Cary. Honestly, they're no huge threat. There are so many big and small LCOs, even TruGreen has their fair share but no "monopoly" or anything like that.

    They do very cheap price on average lawn size, and that is their main competitiveness, cheap. All of crew are mexicans, who can work all day and night under heat and sun without complaint. I have seen their work, nothing spectacular, mostly eXmark wb and sulky for their crew. Again, the cheap price is what they are for. Average equipments also.
