    Today I serviced the entrance to one of my ritzy neighborhoods. In the flowerbed was a sign for another LCO, like they were trying to advertise my work as theirs. Of course I pulled up the sign but should i call them and explain how that is not a good business practice or just let it go?

    Did this LCO do work in the flowerbeds? Mulch? Plants? If not, I would probably call them and let the little SOBs know you are on to their little scheme.

    I had the same thing happen to me yesterday.

    I pulled into one of the sports complex's i maintain and there was a sign against the split rail fence with some other landscapers name and number on it.

    Guess they like my work and want to take the credit for it.

    Take the sign and plant it in the worst looking yard you can find, then call them and tell them the address.

    That's funny you say that, because that was the exact thing that I was thinking. Actually, I thought more along the lines of an abandined house that has a lawn that is about a ft. and a half tall.

    I like that idea. I'll have to remember that if it ever happens to me.
