    393 accounts at the end of last service year. Lost 10% over winter. Dropped another 15% to make routes more profitable with the higher gas prices.

    we started another mow company and just passed out a few flyers is all for ads as an experiment. so far 50 are signed up for that service and we turned down 20 more cause we were short on help at the time. still getting calls everyday. less than 1 month into experiment. just might sweep all of nwa with it and run all the desperate lawnboys out of biz.
