    Seems like everyone worrys about lowballers, scrubs and uneducated lawn care guys that think there turf pros. Let me say this i have been in business for 14 years I have never lost customers to lowballers or any other company. My prices are not cheap nor are they high, they are what the market will bear in my area. Guys im not bragging but i do know that my company is in high demand. WHY YOU ASK? 1. IM ALWAYS ON EVERY JOB THAT WE DO. 2. WE DO NOT HIRE ANY SUBS FOR WORK WE CANT DO. IF WE CAN NOT DO IT WE LET THE CUSTOMER CALL WHO THEY WANT TO THAT SEPERATES US FROM HEADACHES WE DONT WANT 3. WE ARE A LICENCED PESTICIDE COMPANY 4. WE DO 60% RESIDENTAL AND 40% COMMERICAL 5. WE ARE A FULL SERVICE LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE COMPANY WE HAVE KNOWLEDGE ON HOW AND WHEN TO PRUNE TREES AND SHURBS PLANT AND TRANSPLANT. 6.WE DO NOT LIKE TO HIRE KIDS THE TURN OVER IS TO GREAT 7. THE ONLY THING THAT WE ARE NOT TOTALLY UP ON IS IDENTIFING INSECTS ON TREES AND SHURBS. Bottom line is if you are just out cutting lawns and thats all you know then any one can take your job. 7 hort degree also.

    Whoa, the whole problem with people who hire scrubs is that they DON'T CARE about all that...

    You know,i hear where you are coming from, but the problem isnt that these guys are necessarily doing bad work. See, here's the deal, what if some mow and go company just subbed out the extra work to specific specialists? I do that. As a matter of fact it is a rather good selling point to me. I tell them that i can go get the same fert. as they can at the store, but this XYZ spray company has access to stuff i cant touch. Plus they have an 80K rig to do the job right. So the spray company sprays, i mow, i do all the networking and reap benifits from both sides of the fence. Now XYZ tells thier company that they dont mow but............:D

    You may be a great one man show your whole career. Super and i am glad there are people out there like you. But if you ever get hurt your busniess is in real trouble. You are such a "specialist" that few out there can do what you can do. And if they can they are already probably doing it for themselves. Me on the other hand, i got it easy when i choose to mow and go.

    (I do other stuff too, but just making a point here is all)
