    In one sentence or less, list a defining characteristic of a scrub.

    The guys who go door to door and offer to cut your lawn for $5 less then your currently being charged.....without even asking what your paying right now. That's a scrub.

    Cheap ignorant home owners who don't care about quality, insurance, and legit businesses make scrubs and keep them thriving.

    not how i define it. the above for me is a lowballer.

    A company may lowball but may still be registered, incorporated, insured, licenced, etc..

    so...

    LCO SCRUB: someone who runs an LCO but is not registered, insured or licenced to do the work.

    LCO lowballer: someone who undercuts the price of a competitor, with no regard to market forces, company revenue streams or company costs, simply to get the job.

    You might be a scrub if................ your idea of a blower is mom's kitchen broom.

    I must confess. I used a broom my first year in the biz. But it wasn't Mom's.

    Scrubs are the "flea market" of lawn care. Stop worrying about them and start running your businesses.
