Tri-City Lawn Care's Thread...

I've just ended my third year in business. I started my company when i was 22 shortly after returning from a 2 year mission in California. After two years of making my own schedule and being my own boss, i knew it would be difficult to come back to Ohio and work for someone else. I saw a lot of Latinos doing outdoor maintenance, so in our daily travels i would take time to talk to them and gather information. I decided, shortly before returning to Ohio, that I was going to just mow lawn when i got home and then take it from there. Needless to say, I've fell in love with this industry. I love business, and this has been a great fairly fail safe way of getting my feet wet in the business world. I have a vision for my lawn care company and am working diligently to accomplish it. Since 2009 I've met my beautiful wife, bought a house and am expecting our first (boy, heir to my throne this January. That's me in a nutshell.

I got into fertilizing this year, and i really enjoy it. It's been a great addition to my company. I'm gearing my company towards maintenance only, with the exception of Mulch. I will also be getting into the snow removal arena this year as well. I bought two snow blowers, as I will start with what i can handle and go from there. Mainly:

Mowing
Fertilizing/Weed Control
Mulch
Aerating/Overseeding
Snow Removal

All of equipment is basically paid for, I got the truck new in 05' and when i returned form California i had zero equipment. I used my dads red Huskee riding mower and loaded into the back of my pickup with ramps. I shortly thereafter financed the Kubota. I've since made the decision to pay cash for my equipment, and it's made a big difference. The two lesco's, walk behind and leaf loader, i got for a GREAT price on Craigs List.

I've got to ask...what happened to the rear window on your truck? And what is that broken rod thing in the first set of pics?

Loading some debris and old cement pillars for a lady, one rolled the wrong way. It's a grounding rod.

Puddle of oil- YES, that is your Lesco. I fixed it for under $50, $45 to be exact.
New idler pulley and belt to drive the pumps.

Cat- It's a kubota zg222 with a 48'' pro deck

I bought the ariens deluxe 28 and used MTD from my dealer. All the grass was loaded in there with my leaf loader. It was from a job for the Army. There are closing a small reserve unit down and wanted me to clean it up. That's my dad unloading it.
