Hi. My name is John and I am 15 yrs old. My Uncle owns an Lco and a Garden Center here in N.Y. I have been working at the garden center for about 3 yrs. I am very good at plant i.d. and landscaping. Well about 2 years ago,with my uncles help, i started up my own little landscaping biz(if u will). Clean Cut Landscaping. I do mostly landscape installs but also leaf clean up and mowing. I have 2 mowing accounts and 6 regular landscape maintenance accounts. For equipment I have a Toro Self Propeled Mower, a Crapsman Tractor , with cart(yeah i know!!!LOL), a gas handheld blower, a 5 hp Mighty Mac walk behind blower, a Toro straight shaft gas trimmer,a Homelite curved shaft trimmer, a Poulan Chainsaw, 2 wheelbarrows, and a whole mess of hand tools. My mom gave me one half of our 2 car garage to store my equipment in, and to use as a shop. I had to work hard for all of this. (except for the walk behing blower which was a back up at his lco :cool2: ).I am not a low baller either, i charge my accounts with my uncles help. I will post pics of my work soon.

Thanks!!!
