    Ever wonder what your customer was thinking. This is why I started a fertilizer program to try and prevent things like this from happening. Was almost to embarrassed to even park my truck by this yard to mow it.:eek:

    You couldn't pay me enough to cut that yard. If you are there people will think you did it .

    I am hoping to get them on a program and with a picture like that compared to some of the stuff I do hopefully they will come on board. Have been mowing this yard for two years and leaf removal for three, hate to give up their business. Marc

    While your mowing that yard, write your competitors name and phone number with a black marker on a white t-shirt and wear it while your maintaining the lawn. :laugh:

    Park down the block and sneak up on it, or better yet mow it at night.
