Good Morning,
I am Michael and a partner and I bought an existing lawn service company here in GA. We have 35 accounts and are trying to grow the business to around 55. My partner Melissa is the point person, while I for now handle all the back end stuff...HR, payroll, accounting, taxes.
Melissa has been designing gardens for 25 years while I cut my teeth in the golf industry as a certified golf course superintendent over the last 12 years.
I am excited about being my own boss, and the headaches that will ensue.

Thanks,

Mike

Sounds good. Good luck with your new path. My wife and i are considering a move to GA. Were looking in the savanah or coastal areas.

Your background will give you an edge. I've thought about getting more education in turf management but don't have the time. If I were you, I'd buy a Walker and cater to only high-end residential customers and offer the whole nine yards, including 7 app/year chemicals. That's what people are willing to pay for.
