    Sorry the farthest west I've ever been is Iowa. But I do like your screen name. I'm sure Stone will enjoy it as well as he refers to Them as the fellas in the big yellow urea truck.

    From what I read, not very many landscapers are from California, I
    guess not many CA gardeners use the internet. You may have noticed that the problems of easterners are quite different from CA. ie: snow, mowing only part of the year, leaves only during certain parts of the year instead of year around. In Sacramento, the city of trees(or so theyu claim) it is a year around battle with leaves, lawns of course grow 12 months. I use because of urban traffic an Isuzu NPR HD cab over, and dont use a trailer. It is a lot easier to get around downtown. Competition is fierce, cheapest price, do it FAST, SLOPPY, AND GET OUT! nO ONE WANTS A GOOD job. At the average stop light, you will find at least 4 - 6 landscape trucks. One the average street while stopped to do lawns, same 3 - 4 or more gardeners.

    that would solve some of the drug trafficing and illegal immigration problems.

    I live in LV and it is not much different. However I have been finding that reliably is a problem here. The lawn cutting is the same, it is not rock science. However there is a big difference in the sprinklers repairs and installs. The installs here suck. Talk about cheap, just to get the job done. Then have someone else a year later fix the problems.

    Alot of the workers don't speak english or say they don't. So the home owners can't talk to the people.

    On the flip side, I was talking to a lady today. I figure that I would be there for about 40 minutes. Lots of little trees and tight areas. Then she complaned that the guy was undependable.

    Her husband calls and makes an appointment for this morning. I go but he is not there. Had to do errands. So I talk to her again. They do have money, but do demanding. I don't think it is worth it. She likes the forest look and wants me to cut every other week.

    Not sure what I will do.
