Part-time for now. Once I retire will be going full-time next year. We are starting to ramp up the company with new equipment to be ready for next year.<p>----------<br>--Disneyland on the Potomac<br>www.go-emerald.com

950 members and how many lurkers? ARE YOU FULL TIME OR PART TIME? WHAT IS YOUR FINALE ANSWER?

Speaking for some of us lurkers, I don't answer questions like this because I am not a Pro lawn care guy. I have a commercial mower and I learn from this forum but there are a number of questions I feel I must stay out of.<p>Frank

Let's see, it's Sunday night 10:42 and I just got home from cutting a cemetery and in 6 hours I will be heading to my full time construction day job then from there back to cutting until 10 or 11 so I guess I am only part time at the cutting stuff. This time of year is really hard on us, too many jobs all at once.

I have lights on my Walkers and I black tape a flashlight to the weed trimmer if it gets too dark. We only try to cut big places in the dark, soccer fields ball diamonds and a couple of rural cottage properties.

Part-Time lawn & landscape. Some days it feels like full time. Work Full-Time at nite in factory. As soon as I can build my customer base to exceed factory income I'll go Full-Time in the lawn business. Till then I just keep plugging away Part-Time.
