I am looking for an assistant/partner for my lawn maintenance and landscaping business. I am looking for someone under 16 (I am 14), who has at least some experience running commercial equipment, or has their own. I am in the Allendale, NJ area, which is about 20 minutes from Hillsdale, NJ, and about 5 minutes from Mahwah, NJ. So far I am holding my own, but it would be nice to have someone help me out with my lawns and landscaping. If anyone is interested, put up a post, and I'll contact you.

Thanks, Matt K Work and Landscaping :waving:

Either my parent's Chevrolet 2500 Suburban, my grandpa's Chevrolet 2500 Silverado, or my parent's Jeep Wrangler. Either my parent's or my grandfather drives me to my jobs.

mkwl, I admire your industriousness, your drive, and most of all your creativity! Be not swayed; drive on !

You will soon be in a position to hire (or NOT ! ) some of those who give you a hard time today.

Do you have a liscence for running all of those skid steere that you don't actually have? BTW, I am fully insured, just in case you were wondering. Also, since you claim to work 4 days a week, when do you go to school- I guess you don't since you clearly don't know proper grammar and spelling?

skid steer that is how to spell it and you don't need a license for running ag equipment only a permit for driving so the answer would be yes. Quick question how are you insured you can't sign any legal documents until your 18 so i'm pretty sure you aren't insured for general liability under your companies name. and yes i do work thurs, fri, sat, mon and now tues (due to more accounts recieved in the last week) and flyer on wed and now it is 5 days and 1 day of flyering. So do you have a liscense for applying pesticides? School is out for the summer man. When school is in I work weekends and after school everday that adds up to about 4 days. thanks

not really just trying to tell him it is not a very good idea to be fertilizing especially when he has that kind of equipment that is a pretty big fine if he gets caught just tryin to help him out

your right buddy, I dont have insurance. I was going to get it and had it all worked out, so I personally couldnt get it, but the company is insured so if someones wall that I put up falls down, im covered. And the busines is registered and all that, I just had to put it in my pop's name until im 18, that way im legal....

and I dont fertilize, if I was 18 and had a pestiside lisence I would, but I dont so im not going to risk the 5000 fine.
