    I have been working in this 1 community for a few years now. only ever seen 1 or 2 other lco in here besides me. This year, i seen 7 different lco within a few hours, all within this 1 community.

    Welcome to the "lawn business". It is like that every year. Each season, there are 40% more morons out pulling trailers than the year before. This is because the "grass cuttin' bizness" does NOT draw rocket scientists, for some reason. It is all too easy to get into, and lets face it...from a techinical aspect, for the most part, it doesn't take a whole lot of intellectual stimulation. You can usually hire the basic "laborer" mentality and when they are properly trained, can perform the usual mundane tasks of the mowing operation.
