    Bill explain this to me. You dont think the guy working under the table (not paying taxes) and probally without insurance is not a lowballer just because he does good work? If thats what your saying i would have to disagree but thats ok. I might not have explained myself properly before, i hope i didnt sound like i was whining :(. I personally dont care about the lowballer except for the image it may portray upon the industry as a whole. If a customer wants a lowballer then fine, doesnt really bother me. There will always be customers who worry about price only and those about quality only. I want the quality oriented.<br>Have a nice weekend!!<br>Mark A Musolf

    MJM what Im trying to say is those types of operators will always be out there, lawn care co-op or whatever wont make a difference, the under the tabler guys are there and will always be there so we just have to deal with it is all.<p>Bill
