    I was out scouting some country road and more rurals areas looking for larger lawns. I didn't see one LCO in the area. Is it a bad idea to market to people with 2 to 5 acre lots? Or people out farther from the city for that matter? A few looked like they were done by an LCO.

    One thing about folks in the country.They want you to cut their 2-5 acre lawn at the same price you would charge someone with a 1/4 to 1/2 acre lot.

    I mow in rural NW OH. Most people do it them selves, and you need to plan on a lot of drive time. I make more money per stop in town. Also, ponds and wind breaks are a real pain the neck to mow around.
