Here is one to banter about in the group. I truly have been wondering why there are so many LCOs popping up all of a sudden? Some have said it is due to the economy being bad in their area but this is not a local thing. There are a ton of new LCOs all over the nation. So I ask again "WHY NOW?????" Is it due to mowers being easier to get? Is it due to lawnsite.com bringing the business to the masses? Why now? And I don't mean just right now in the spring. I mean over the past few years.
