  2. OK:rolleyes: I bet they are paying half too....

    They have 2 trucks rolling around here and they compete right against TG landcare. I never seen people loose money to get jobs like that before.

    Who is US LAWNS and why are they taking over all the banks in Chattanooga on June 1 ?


    Am I missing something?

    Part of another story?

    Are they a big company or something?

    Please Clarify

    Isnt that rediculous? I about cried laughing when i saw an article telling about an established lco here that bought into the US Lawns franchise. Talk about a rip off.

    Well we have one here. They are big time! Big fancy enclosed trailer and big freekin decals. They tout some fancy paper work that improves quality. They overbid me by $50 a week on a 275/week job and got the job for a Hom own --- . Then they waited till time for first cut and said they were too busy. I guess there are some chinks in that franchise armor. The --- gave me a chance to re bid so I split the diff. OK job.
