This area is horrible.. the going rate for a 1/4 acre yard is $60 a month..How can you survive on that? Seems no one cares about quality anymore.. Its all about price..
Its hard to come up with ideas when competing at such a low price..

You guys got any ideas??

I now longer seek mowing jobs. If I get a call for one I will bid it but I don't seek them. Organic insect control is big, soil treatment and weed control is big also, as with pressure cleaning.

The economy has all but eliminated mowing (people are doing it themselves or letting it out to the cheapest price). But, the other services such as fertilization, soil treatment, insect and weed control with all the new regulations and "Green" hype is beyond their equipment and knowledge.
