Hello Landscapers,
My name is Jimmy, I have been working for 5 years know. I curently have 12 mowing accounts and 15 snow removal accounts, witch I plan on expanding on every year. To my customers I provide Mowing, Snow Removal, Hedge Trimming, Fall+Spring Clean-ups and also Mulch Instillation. My current equimpent is a 05 Exmark Metro 32, Shindaiwa EB601, Shindaiwa Home Pro, and a Shindaiwa hand held blower, Giant Vac 5 Horse, Toro 21in mower, Toro 26in 8 horse, 20in 5 horse Snow Blowers, 3.5 hores edger. I also work for another company a few days a week. In a little over a year I will be able to drive. My plans for Trucks are my uncle's 04 Ford F250 w/ 8 foot Fisher and a family friends 03 Ford F350 Dump w/ 9 foot Fisher. I also plan on getting a 12 or 14 foot trailer to pull around my mowers and other things. Also in a year or two I will get a 60in Exmark Lazer XS. If any of you have any tips please reply. I do not think this is a bad set-up for a 15 year old.
Thank You

How do you manage 15 snow removal accounts with no truck?

Mystic Landscape,
It is not that hard to manage 15 accounts even though i still go to school everyday, because I have two snow blowers and one of my younger brothers working for me. It only takes me about 3 or 4 hours to get my work compleated correctly for my customers.
