    I have no problem with low ballers in the Franklin. Brentwood, Nashville area.
    Have 83 yards with 35 the lowest. Tough break when gas went to $4, it really thru a wrench in the people that were scraping through, if they were trying to lowball. Some of them are not around.
  2. I am really not worried about low ballers. I am legal here in ky....and plan to be in Tn. Its really stupid not to be if you are full time or doing more than the neighbors yard.
    I have all the equipment I need....and plan on getting another scag tt. The exmark 48 Lazar is really nice but I need something bigger. I really only want to get about 30-40 maint. accounts this year. I do have a ? nograss.......Is it real rocky in the nashville area? I have been thinking about getting a trencher for my dingo. I might even get a plow if the soil is good. Do you guys buy from local wholesalers or go to mcminville for all your plants? Is there places to buy screened topsoil ???? Whats the rate????

    If you are going to use it for irrigation ditches it would be a great idea. John Deere in franklin has efverything and delivers. If you are going to buy a bulk load McM would be good if you have the time to go.

    I'd say a lot of the neighborhoods in the metro area will start early to mid march. Where I am in the rural areas it really depends on how early spring comes. Two years ago we ahd temps in the 70's and 80's the middle of march...then WHAM we had those overnight teens Easter weekend in April. I'd say you should have those postcards out no later than Valentines Day myself. Get your name in front of people early.

    Hey guys I'm new to this site and I was thinking the same thing about the post cards my self. We sent them out last year around mid march last year to try something new and It turned out to be ok. This year we are starting next Monday and going to put out about 7500 to 10000 post cards to try to get a jump on it this year
