    I'm noticing around here that alot of cops retire and start landscaping businesses. I know 2 personally and I think theres a few more that have started up, all in the past couple years only and thats only from my township that has 10-15 cops. I could only imagine what the larger surrounding cities cops are doing.

        I have noticed two older people starting up lawn maintenance companies here. Both of them are around 55-60 years old

          Do they do the work themselves or are they more over seeing operations?

            Both of them are doing the work themselves that I can see. I don't think that they work it full time though

                I personally feel that they drive the prices down. Yes, I know that we can all argue that you can't necessarily blame that totally on competition, but in this area, when a new company comes in with lower prices, people will flock to them

                  I absolutely agree with you and I do feel such competition drives down prices, but what do you feel are the best options when presented with such a situation?
