    So have you noticed any effect of the new immigration law on the LCO's down there? Seen a lot of headlines but wondered what if any effect it had on the industry.

    some of the bigger companies lost about 5-10 workers is all i've seen or heard about...they just left and never showed up for work...but the grass growth is slowing down now so they are not suffering from it...they still have alot of legal mexicans working for them...so i figure they will have new people hired for next year and be fine....i'm sure some of the illegal mexican crews have stopped working but really there weren't any lawn businesses run by illegals around here that i know of...most of the illegals work for legal people......there are legal mexicans here too who have businesses.
