Thats a bunch of trucks! Where do you keep them all? Those sure look like some good ones. I bet you have an enormous gas bill though.

That is about half of them. They are at 3 different locations.

You know what they say about a landscapers own lawn.....look at the grass in the pictures Sorry I had to poke fun at that....Anyway that is a fleet of gas guzzling trucks. Looks as if you keep them in good shape though. Good Luck this winter.

With all these trucks, I would think you would be in a great position to have insight into why do you feel the majority of lawn care business owners never get to the size you are at now?

What keeps most of them small?

Can you think of a time period you pushed through and it made you really stand out from others?

Everyone has different reasons, but here are a few that come to mind.

1. They spend too much money on equipment, trucks, ect., before the business can support the costs. If you notice, all of my trucks are older but paid for. A nice new truck looks pretty and all, but I can do the same thing and only spend 1/10th of the cost.

2. Greed is a big killer. You must pay your helpers a decent wage to keep them. My lawn guys average $20+ an hour. I don't have the employee turn over that most do. This allows me to grow without worries of help being there.

3. They never dedicate themselves. They do the lawn work as a suppliment of income and have another job too. With the security of the "day job", many won't strive for growth.

These are a few that come to mind. I will add more as they come to me.
