    A friend gave up lawn and landscape to start beekeeping. With high gas prices, increasing regulations and more refugees mowing the lawn business makes no sense. Strangely I am not seeing homeowners returning to mow their own though.

    I haven't seen a problem to much. For me it seems as people are putting in more hours at the office, they look at there weekend as more of a time to relax with the family are are willing to let go of a little money so that they don't have to spend more time wirking outside

    Seems out here that the only thing people dislike more than paying money is mowing the lawn themselves.

    That trickle down effect seems to be a deception eh?
