    Are we going to have to eventually cave into the volume idea of lots of customers at low prices to compete with the current economy?

    lazy people still exist, and want their lawns mowed.

    How true, I also find image conscious people have actually multiplied exponentially

    I agree Green Pro - especially in the Iowa City area - and I would bet there are a lot of subdivisions close to you that have roots in Iowa City.

    Just wait until the riverboat near here is operational, besides the I.C. commuters we will have a new breed of folks to deal with, hopefully the ones in upper mgmt. that enjoy the finer things LOL. Need to get together for coffee sometime over winter. Two more large jobs on the burner for next week, then time to winterize.
     
  6. what kind of riverboat is opening there.

    Cool - Have to admit I am a bit jealous - Burlington is a dying town - you are in the growth delux area - Go for it.

    I find that local low ball guys do that already. We have the "cream of crop" clients. I have said it b4 & I'll say it again - 10% of my clients represent 80% of our sales. Focus on who you service and grow from there. Mowing - spraying - aeration - snow removal - etc.
