    I saw guys cutting grass with lawnmowers (big ones) and they had a big truck and trailer. And most amazing is they probably were licened and insured, they even had the same color shirts on with name tags on them. How cheap right. Who do these guys think they are, these are the type of people bringing down the maintenace business.

    was it a nice truck? big? expensive? these are the guys who work CHEAPER than the little guy. they have to cus they need volume, it takes massive gross to pay for expensive toys. so yes, in fact, they drive the industry down.

    I must be dense.;)

    "They use lawn mowers" And you use what?

    They buy expensive stuff and that automatically make them cheap!

    Do we even know what they charge?

    Was there a point to this thread?

    Sorry, just REALLY confused by some of the comments.
