    Just curious how many of you guys do just landscape work or do most of you landscape as well as mow?

    we do mostly mowing services all year long , with our climate we work all year long. we do installs when they come up but our area is packed with installers ...so we target the mowing.

    We do both. I prefer landscaping and it pays better, but mowing is usually the 'foot in the door'. Mowing has lower margins, but technically profitable. The big knock on mowing is the quantity of competiion, but the reallity is very few of them have the machinery, financial capital, or knowledge to compete in the landscape genre.
