Hi all,

Just thought I would say hi. I'm new here, and a little new to landscaping meaning I have worked in landscaping for other people part time over the years, and with the exception of when I was younger, have always worked it part time. I have a full time job, working the 4 to 12 shift. and I am thinking of getting back into landscaping part time for now, until such time as I feel comfortable expanding and doing it full time. I should have mentioned that I'm looking to start my own business starting with lawn maintenance for now with about 20 customers per week, I'm looking into commercial equipment right now and this forum has been very informative( I have been lurking for the better part of a year now, sorry it took this long to register and introduce myself). I live in Delaware, and I am an aircraft mechanic by trade, but looking for a new path in life. I have worked maintenance to install and I am currently teaching my self pond work. well just thought I would say hi as I will be picking your brains from here on in.

Thanks all, I am very excited to get started, but I am looking at used commercial for now, plus a WB also. I am checking on my insurance and such right now, and I do have access to a JD z757 for this season, and a Bobcat also(don't think I need that yet), but I am hoping in 1 to 2 seasons to be in this full bore, the aviation industry is a bit to volatile for my taste and I hate office work(right now anyway). Thanks for the welcome. Till later.
