Have any of you guys seen the "competition" starting to drop off? I live in a very small town and I have a 7-3 full time job while doing this part time. I have 30 lawns now and am about at my limit. There were about 4 full time outfits cutting here until a week ago when one of them succumbed to the drought. We all know each other and I gave him a call and asked him if he would mind handing out my cards to his soon to be former customers, he agreed. I have gotten 4 new accounts this week and they are super easy cuts. On another note, we got 6"+ of rain this month and I am so busy that I can hardly get a break lol. Some days I just want to take it easy but I know if I do then someone else will be making the $$$ I could be out there making.

Do you have any idea how long they have been in business? Did that have any effect on who ended up closing first?
