    From most of the posts I read u all don’t seem to know how operate a landscape business.

    we are nothing more than carsalesman, selling a product which is service.
    all that has to be done is just be like a good car seller. inorder to do this all you need to do is find out what the customor wants_____ it's that simple.
    but, you also must know when you cant give the customer what they want/ AND Its then that you have to be savy enough to to walk away
    i believe we need to stop bitcin at the cummie customers because we arn't doing our job to find out what cusotmer wants n put the blame where it should be. thats us and not the customer

    . . . and to think I've spent how many hours reading, and how many dollars on accountants, attorneys fees. I could've just waited for this post.

    . . . go kick the tires on the lawn across the street that we do, ma'am, it's got everything; radio, heater, whitewall tires . . . wait, uh. . . slow release fertilizer, grub control, preemergent; absolutely loaded.

    You gonna buy a lawn service today? (whispering)Tell you what I'm gonna do: I'll let you have this lawn service wholesale. Yup, not gonna make a dime on this deal. The boss just wants it off the lot . . . uh, I mean, he wants the lot . . . I mean the lawn.

    Is this post a joke?

    So you are the pinnacle of landscaping. Congratulations.

    You run the perfect landscape business, BUT YOU CAN'T RUN A SPELL CHECKER!

    You ought to learn how to use a spell checker because apparently the government school system spit you out damn near illiterate.

    You write on a 6th grade level, dimwit!:help:
