    I believe that business follows money and I see a lot more franchised lawncare businesses than I do maintenance, (other than US Lawns)
    Easy solo operation. One truck and a much smaller equipment outlay. Most do not even have a trailer, Less competion.
    A well run design and install landscape business can do very well that is why I said "not counting landscape"
    So again Indy I am not sure why you say what you do??

    I thought you were flaming him, my bad. I think he meant mowing, seeding, fert, bush trimming, edging, mulching beds, etc......, which is the highest profit service.
