We are thinking of moving to a suburb on the south side of Kansas City. What area is better to start over doing lawncare? Some of the things that need consideration are housing costs, demand for work, place for wife to work(mainly factory work), and so on. Looked at buying a company in Lawrence, KS this week but just couldn't get together. Looks to be a lot of money difference in Lawrence as compared to these areas anyway. We are operating a small lawn service in S.W. Missouri currently and it is just not working out here. My main competition is retired guys with a H.D. mower, someone who is on disability, or part time guys charging 15.00 per lawn. I think the main problem here is not many even know what a nice lawn looks like. They think is the green stuff(grass ) is under a foot tall and you can still see some of the house behind the shrubs that haven't been trimmed in 2 years they are looking good,lol. We end up working for way less than we should and fight hard to even get paid at that. Anway looking for some help from folks already in the K.C. area.
