Landscapers' Roadshow

So when exactly did landscapers run out and buy moving vans?  Were there lots of bargains on the market due to this economic slowdown where folks aren’t moving cross-country as much?  In the McMansion neighborhood that I cut through on my way to work these parked behemoths routinely block an entire lane forcing one-way traffic.  Shouldn’t there be an off-duty policeman stationed there with his warning lights flashing away?

It wasn’t long ago that landscapers towed around those open trailers made of metal mesh – that was it.  Heck, I can recall when a landscaper was a solo gentleman with a two day old scruffy beard, a push lawnmower, a rake and an aging hound dog or mutt for companionship.  All transported in the back of his 20 year old Chevy pickup truck with four dented fenders and a busted taillight.  Times ain’t what they used to be.
