I know that the last thing any of you guys want to do after mowing all week is to mow your own yards. It seems like from many threads it is a badge of honor for some of you to have the worst yard in the neighborhood. I don't have the energy to do my own 2 acre yard as well as I do my customers, but I do it every week - even if I don't string trim everything very often. My neighbors mow much more often, but I do get mine weekly. My question to you guys that don't keep up with your own yard is how much business does it cost you in your own neighborhood to not keep your own yard up? I feel that I have to keep my yard at least presentable since my neighbors know that I am an LCO. In fact there are other LCO's ( 1 school age kid and 1 guy with a lawn tractor and new ztr) starting to enter my neighborhood.
