We all mow, landscape, snow removal etc. What do you guys do different each year to set yourselves apart from the "other" LCO's? Myself - we mow, add spraying/fert programs 6 years ago, we landscape small to medium yard, snow removal. Well a few years ago - commercial properties were asking us about parking lot maintance - sure - looked at it and bought a paint striper and that has been a great buy. Now were starting to do decks, fencing, etc for the job that were landscaping and also for others just looking for a deck when the local builders are to busy during the summer for just a deck. I also sell wood during the winter - not a big money deal but it is extra money. Problem I see is when I start something or add a service - I am soon followed and there goes the profit margins cuz most people I beleive have no idea what there actual cost of doing this service cost them. It is truely dog eat dog out there and I think I need to stay a step ahead (most times) to be inovative and push the service industry a little differently each year.
