    I was walking to class this morning through the home depot parking lot and went by a truck and trailer. There were no mowers in the trailer but it looked like they were in the lawn care bus. Anyway, the sign on the truck said UNDERCUTS.
    That is quite the name if I ever saw one.

    We had a guy in are area who sent flyers to everyone in town saying will cut any yard for $20- "WE CUT THE COMPETION". Every lawncare company was furious. I called him and acted like a homeowner. I sent him out to cut a yard up the road that is atleast 10 acres,-he never did it and never called back.

    2 months later I heard he was selling his business.of what he had.

    It usally catches up to everyone who undercuts in the long run. Have them pay insurane, permitts, taxes, etc. and charge there prices.

    they'll learn when they back there trailer or mower into something without insurance. Then the homeowner would wish he called a professional.
