ProTurf, one more question:
Are you well versed in irrigation? How did you initially step into the irrigation sector of this business? Did you have to hire someone that already knew the stuff, or did you take some sort of class to learn it? Seems like it would be hard for me to grasp getting into something I don't know anything about, and it would be especially hard to price it correctly.
I am plotting to move my business to a more affluent area; WAY too many guys around here are happy to bring home $15 an hour mowing for themselves. Obviously, this makes it impossible for me to get out of the field and hire people.
