A friend of mine stopped into the rental center where I work full time. He has been a mower and landscape contractor for at least 20 years. I mentioned I am trying to go out on my own this year and he advised against it. He says there are a number of Mexican crews out there who have left companies like Brickman to go out on their own, and are just killing local landscapers with under bidding. I do mostly mowing so I dont compete with him. I trust his word but I still think there should be a lot of residential work out there. Any thoughts?
