    Well I live in East Tennessee and one any given day I will pass more mowing outfits than you can shake a stick at. I just do this part time and i have never really tried to find any of my mowing jobs so I don't really know how competitive the business is but there are alot of guys out there. Just my 2 cents.

    I have been in business in east tennessee for years now and I have not seen any great increase in demand. I have seen an increase in part time outfits though, which makes every piece of the pie a little smaller.

    Is TN predominately warm season grasses or a mix? I hear of scalping being done there alot early in the season.

    It is in the transition zone. You have both. Closer to Memphis you'll see more Southern Grasses while in East Tn or Nashville you will see more Northern grasses.
