    all good input lads especially you turflord.its been a long hot summer here but its becoming alot more pleasant.there are alot of people ringing lately for bigger and better paying jobs.i have culled a few mowing jobs.i have kept mainly the ones who constantly request other services like gutter cleaning, tree lopping etc and never question the bill mind you.point taken about the mowing though ,good cash flow and bottom line work in a slow economy

    thanks fellas

    You will be more than happy targeting gardening rather than lawns.I was interested in doing lawns for a while but when i can earn $30 + on one plant for in effect no work its a no brainer!

    Alot of companies are changing their business future to landscape/hardscape and no mowing. To each their own, you gotta do what is best for you and your business. I myself have been able to capitalize the mowing end of it!:clapping:
