Raining here! Wahoo!. I didn't think it could get worse. But this year the grass cutters are tripping all over each other. I have heard it said in the past that there is plenty enough work for all of us. But this is too much. Husband and wife teams in stationwagons out there pulling lawn trailors. Did I miss something here? Is the lawn business really such a goldmine? I know that most of these people will drop out by mid summer. But man my ad has barely attracted the calls I use to get. I change it too. I don't blame anything except that their are way too many lawn companies out there. I must pass 10 a day on my route. I have almost a full schedule but could really use 20 more yards. I know I am being lazy by not soliciting door to door etc. The point of this post is to wonder why their are sooo many lawn care companies out their fighting for so few yards. I don't think I have ever seen it this quite saturated. Every corner their is a lawn care company lol. I think in this town of 200,000, their are alot of people on collecting disability and working a cash lawn care business on the side. I saw in the paper the other day that people on disabilty were the most likely to be audited by the IRS. I saw a man the other day doing a commercial job with what looked like a 5 year old holding a blower. People out their, just because you see alot of lawn care companies out their, dont assume that they are making alot of money and you should quit your real job and join us.
