Slow and Steady Wins the Race
When I first started my lawn-care business, I had a small riding mower, a cheap Walmart weedeater, a handheld blower, and hand-me-down, 10+ year old push mower (that I still use). That's what made me "The Slower Mower." I couldn't maintain pace with all the "big guys" and their fancy equipment.
However, through humility and hard-work, I was able to build my business, and now have a "fancy" Zero Turn, a great weedeater, backpack blower ... and can effectively compete with the "big guys."
When choosing a lawn-care provider, you'll need to consider who's actually going to be doing the work. Will it be the actual business owner, or will it be two high-school kids making $10 an hour, while the owner sits in the AC? If so, these kids will likely be less concerned with doing an excellent job, because they're just trying to hurry up and finish, so they can clock out and hit the road.
Whereas, when you hire The Slower Mower, I'm going to be the only person handling your lawn. Sure, it's going to take me longer than the two-person team of distracted Millennials, but haste makes waste.
Remember: Guys that finish too quickly don't generally produce satisfying results. 😏
