      Wow. If your trying to post your ad's, at least make sure you spell everything right!

      Its amazing how many ad's are poorly written. I found this one on craigslist today, it was the first ad I clicked on.

      "Do you need yard fertilized,mulched, pruned or lawn cut on a regular basis, debris from last fall can be done for a reasonable price. also i cant design and install flower beds around the house"

      He Cant design and install flower beds??????? HAHAHAHAHAHA

          I found two craiglist listings around me, they crack me up every time. Here is the first one the title is "is anyone iso lawn care" and this is what he said.

          R u looking for very reliable good lawn care services prices very resonable and aleays negotiable

          Here is the other one titled "Lawn Care"

          I am here to do the job just once or if you need it done on a regular schedule I trim, remove, mow and pretty much anyting else you can need done mose jobs $25

          that one wasn't as bad, but he is low balling big time.


          I was at a guys house saturday doing some work with the backhoe when a guy shows up to mow his grass. He had an old work horse lawn mower, he did a pretty decent job with mowing, but he mowed close to everything, loaded up and left, no trimming, no blowing off the driveway, nothing, and I was thinking "what kind of business is that"

            Well, another one bit the dust.

            I used to see a truck driving around, saw him for a few months. It was 4 guys packed into a small toyota truck. Not mexican either. They had 1 push mower in the back, a ryobi trimmer, and a few rakes and such. Maybe they figured out cutting the pay between the 4 of them, they will never turn a good profit. Go figure.

              "Professional organic gardener will work in your yard or garden in exchange for fresh home-grown produce. Email for details."

              -




              and this...

              "I believe that chemicals and power tools have no place in a healthy garden."

              LOLLOLOLOL... wtf bro? Gonna go use a reel mower? As if clients actually give a crap about the environment.

                  Unreal. So many people are unrealistic with what they think a service should cost.

                    Didn't know it was possible for someone to just organically grow produce on an unknown plot...interesting.

                    I also saw a guy yesterday with an old beat up truck and an old as dirt trailer, and he had two diesel kubota zero turns. Not saying I know everything about how to run a business but I think I would have upgraded my truck or trailer before adding a second before expensive mower.

                            There is a local guy around here that uses an old beatup dump truck and a old beat up trailer, but has to brand spankin new john deere residential riders and an older residential rider. Every time I see him I think to myself, you could have bought a nice commercial mower for the price of all of them.
                            Yeah in my area I have seen them working out of their car with a push mower sticking out of the trunk. Cheap hires just looking for a quick buck!
