Sorry if this is long but please read this and give me your thoughts and oppinions if your in the florida area. My area just plain sucks. I live in an area that is one of the most expensive places to live in the united states. People come here because of the high paying jobs and thats all well and good but houses are so outragious it makes most people "house broke". This then leads to the competition here in our industry. The competition has grown in leaps and bounds over the last 10 years and with all the illegals in this area it has drove prices to rock bottom. This leads to us haveing a hard time picking up any new customers then on top of that we cant get what we feel is a fair price so needless to say we just scrape by every year. So far this year we have passed out over 1000 flyers and havent gotten 1 call. We pulled up to one house today that had 5 different lawn care flyers stuck to the mailbox. Every neighborhood we have been to this spring has been plastered with flyers. In the summer it seems as if every 10th truck you pass on the road is a lawn care company. To make matters worse we have ZERO work from the end of november till early march. Well my fiances parents live in Tampa. I have visted there only once but I can see where it might be a great area to work for lawn guys like us. Cutting 12 months a year even if it is only 2-3 weeks between cuts in the winter would be amazing. On top of that it is cheaper to live there. On top of that I am a huge car guy and there is car stuff to do all year there. So my question is........ Are my thoughts way off base? Is the lawn care market down there saturated beyond the immagination like it is here? Somebody set me straight if I am way off base here.
