I see far too many lawn care companies shredding turf on their 60" zero turns leaving bare spots in the lawn, driving over freshly edged beds, leaving grass clippings in the beds, not alternating mowing patterns, basic mow-n-go crap. I have gotten away from lawn care for this reason and have concentrated on fine gardening. In my area the underlying belief is that anybody can cut grass. I find it difficult to find good lawn care professionals to maintain turf. The standard has been set so low and prices dropped so much by these hillbillies with pick ups & a mower that the indusrty as a whole is suffering. I have been lurking on this forum for some time and see very little discussion concerning quality, and a lot of discussion concerning pricing. I give all my turf care to two small companies that take the time to do it right and charge accordingly. Each make a pretty penny from my referrals and is able to charge more with their existing accounts after explaining the quality of their work. If I were in lawn care I would rather do a smaller number of lawns correctly and charge more than bust my tail to churn & burn through a ton of lawns to make the same buck. Make sense to anybody else?
