    how much more are southern lco`s making, as apposed to those further north? Is it substantial or do leaf jobs up north counter the longer season?
    I supplement my season with snow removal but it hasn`t snow for 3 weeks, and it feels like i haven`t cut grass in ages.

    From what I understand, pricing overall seems to be comparitively lower in the South.

    When I was on Cape Cod, stuff like large estate type mowing could get top dollar along with installation.

    But my growing season is much longer here, ( I still mow 2 times a month or more) and my costs are much less than if I was still on the Cape. A huge bennefit is that I have large neighborhoods that will have hundreds of houses in a certain price range in which I can get top dollar. Cape Cod doesnt have planned developments like this, rather its a bunch of different price ranges intermingled. For the most part, atleast where I am, I can make just about the same money and I have a longer growing season.
