well we haven't seen rain in almost a month, and i am now on my 3rd week of not mowing. we've been in or around 90 degree temps for the last month. i just cannot believe the amount of lcos still out there mowing like the grass has never been better. typically its only the weekend warriors out there, but its even the larger companies, what am i missing??? no one here has irrigation, and those watering their lawn, still don't have grass growing. at the library near my parents house the lco hasn't missed a week yet. they'll be lucky if they ever get grass to grow again it looks so bad. when we get to a time like i will skip customers when they don't need cut, but when it gets too dry, i just stop altogether, unless a customer calls. i know if i were these homeowners and my mowing guy came and mowed, i wouldn't paid them, theres just no way to justify a cut when we're in such a bad situation. when mowing slows i have plenty of mulching, tree trimming, and other work to do. do you think these other companies depend so much on their mowing that they won't quit, in fear of going broke? mowing is 85% of what i do, but i save, and plan accordingly so i won't get hurt at times like this. so is this just poor planning on the lcos part, or just outright horrible business ethics? i just don't even know what to think about these other lcos anymore, they obviously aren't in this business for the same reason i am.
