    Ive read some of the ideas about how the forum might be contributing to all the new people mowing.
    I know 10 or more lco here. only 1 ever heard of LAWNSITE.
    My bet is that almost none of the pt timers starting
    now know about this site.
    The truth as I see it is that this just looks like a way out for a fella in debt to his ears, or out of a job.
    With a little more explaining and a little less ridicual
    (sp)we can make the those that dont chg realistically see
    all the cost of operating a buisiness.JUST MINE

    I agree that if there was a way to educate all whom wish to cut grass for a living, the Industry would not be viewed as a joke.

    Unfortunately, no matter what we may try to do or how well we may perform, without a LAW to stop every retiree, former engineer, part timer, etc. we cannot regulate the quality of the contractor out there.

    I wish there was a test, that the DEC could enforce when their out there busting my chops so that these fly-by-nights could some how be regulated.

    But the downfall to this is that we already have too much gov't intervention in our lives and I will continue to perform services to the best of my ability.

    Any more the more I talk to people and the more I think about it, they are actually working in my favor by servceing those dead-beat, late paying, continually gripeing customers I would rather not have to del with, on my management schedules.

    Just my .02

    Now back to your regularly scheduled forum.

    How many square feet are there in a half-acre?

    Discuss amongst yourselves please.

    21,780 sq. ft. in a 1/2 acre. (Which most 3rd graders know, thanx for the challenging question)

    Stone, you're more like a Hammerhead shark: Appearing very intimidating but actually quite docile.
