i pull up to do an estimate, a referel from a long time customer. the neighbor has a lawnservice there working(on a sunday). this is what i saw: a van, with an out of state license plate.about 50 bags of debris lining the curb from the cleanup. two mexicans, get this....one has a 5 gal bucket full of lime, he is spreading it by throwing it around with his hands. another guy has a 5 gal bucket of dimension(i watched him pour it, from the bag to the bucket) he is following the lime guy, he's doing the same thing, spreading it by hand. the wind is blowing the lime right at me and my customer, and i make a comment, "that is the stupidest thing i ever saw, are you nuts?" and they all just stand there looking at me. pathetic, really stupid. my client tells me his neighbor has had these guys for years

the lawns here havn't really started growing yet, so it's hard to tell. i swear i was so tempted to take down the plate number and call the dep, but i'm not sure i want to be that way. i'll own half that neighborhood by the time sept comes

I agree with charles. Mind YOUR OWN Business!!

Bobby, you will have this neighborhood soon as long as these people are not tight wad, price shoppers. I'm sure the taco eaters are lowballin like crazy.
