i hired someone this year once i trained him thought he was a great worker sped things up and seems great now i think im going to lose him because winter is not steady work...
This is the problem we run into as well. Guys like working during peak season, then November hits and they want to stay home, because busy work is "boring." Also just because you have a mowing crew doesn't mean you'll be sitting in an easy chair
. If you are solo and are worried about employees, I would stay solo. In most cases employees are more of a headache than they are worth IMO.
