Ya know...Ive been doing some thinking and research lately, and wanted to share some thoughts...and get some thoughts. Crunching numbers as I always do (and this applies more to solo ops I believe), but the lawn maintenance numbers don't seem to crunch so well. Ive been thinking alot lately of eventually phasing out cutting, and going more towards ferting and squirting. Oh sure...there are less cool toys, but the bottom line of running a business....is...well....the bottom line. After talking to a friend of mine who dropped cutting to focus on ferts, he has said what many others have said, "Its the best move Ive ever made." Now I know some guys like to use fert as an upsell, but for it to really be profitable I believe you have to put full attention to it. Plus...ive never liked the whole "jack of all trades" concept anyway. I kinda like specializing in one thing and doing it very well. When you look at ferts...there is a much lower overhead, and your time on a lawn is much less than mowing (especially for solos). It just seems like to remain solo...ferting is the way to go. Anyway...just my opinion...any thoughts?
