    whats with the station wagons ,busted up trucks and strait up dirt balls ! i feel that i have to presentable and be in uniform and its just me here so clean cut sometimes i feel that people look at all landscape contractors the same becouse they are some real pigs out there. and whats up with contractors not being friendly to each other anymore

    Almost all of the other ones in this area still wave. If they don't, they probably didn't see us wave. I hope they get more friendly out there in Pa. :)

    Scrub competition is everywhere and in many lines of work. Like everyone here says, eventually they will play out their cards and be gone. Of course the next ones will move in but you just have to try and deal with them and make yourself rise to the top. I think that the people looking for the cheapest will get what they pay for, we all know that. Hopefully it comes full circle and now those customers will come to you! I guess it's just a matter of hanging in there.

    Seems to be a lot of Weekend Warriors out here. As for waving, we do wave to a few that we know personally, but for the most part, nobody seems like they want to wave.
