What do you do when it's too dry, to keep your business going?

Here is an inside look at what another lco is doing to keep busy and keep the cash flowing.

Lawn care business drying up - "From April to June, we typically mow each week. From July to October, we typically mow every two weeks," Collins said. "Now we're mowing every three to four weeks on per-time."


Fortunately, he's picked up several extra jobs this summer to offset the lag. For his contractual clients, he's doing other tasks like watering flower beds and sucking leaves.
