    Not in Cobb, but up in Forsyth. A little ways, but still near Atlanta.

    I'm from Bartow County! Just a rocks throw from ya. What part of Cobb are you from? I am actually in the lower part of Cartersville- close to Emerson and Acworth. I got my degree from North Metro Tech. I do a little bit of work in Cobb but not enough to really consider.

    We are located about 30 mins. noth of atlanta in alpharetta/forsyth area. The landscaping here is only going downhill. Guys i know that are making $43,000 to $86,000 a year are loosing there jobs. In the past month i have probably given around 15 estimate for landscaping only to have gotten 3 because of the drought we are having homeowners pretty much" giving up on there lawns" is the best way to put it. All I have to say is pray for RAIN!!

    Not much E. What about you? Are there a lot of guys up there that are goin out of business? I know several guys that are ready to get out of it and get a "real" job as they put it. I hate to say it but I hope they do so we can get some more accounts and maybe some more equipment at a good price. I am tired of these scrubs taking a lawn for $20-25 bucks a cut when it should be $50 a cut.
