    Here it is only Feb 26 and we have already had 6 flyers on our mailbox and one business card from another lawn company . All have been from over 10 miles away and all have been latino companies. Looks like another fun year here in our once lovely state . 5 of the 6 offer fert and hardscape work but not one showed a lisence number .

    I just have a tractor and bush hog right now. I rent a bobcat and ammbusher when needed. I can't find anywhere to rent a mulcher.

    I'm hoping to generate enough business to purchase a skid and mulcher this year

    I recieved one yesterday, 20.00 mowings. It was a large local company to. How do you make a profit cutting for 20.00. I have one account I charge 20.00 for, it's a small townhouse. That's alright, I just need to pick up 5-6 more accounts to get me to where I want to be this season.

    I will be ordering my door hangers soon. up here we dont get much of the latino crews we get every tom dick and harry that think they can take their garden tractor and mow yards for 15-20 bucks and make a living.
