    I wish that was my house. Mine is last on the list and never looks that nice. My helpers say when they buy thier first house they are going to make thier yard one big parking lot.

    We have alot here..usually graden homes. They tend to be high maintanence becuase of the number of bushes and the weed applications that need to occur. Still money..

    Don't go to Arizona to start a lawn service, or you'll see these ALL OVER the place!

    I grew up at the Jersey Shore & probably 60% or more of the houses on any of the islands are like that. 80% of these houses are rented, so lawn maintenance is one less problem for the landlords. My first big landscape install ($11,000) was for the owner of a commercial building that I do the lawn maintenance at. He decided he didn't want to mow any more so I made a bunch of stone and mulch beds with shrubbery. I'll take customers that don't want to mow anytime :)
