Oh yer, I think there are quite a few of us on here, maybe we should secretly plan a take over How come we don't have a flag on the Smilies? USA, Canada, Australia but no Union Jack. D'yer recon their ashamed of us? We should bombard the administrator with PM's to ask why.

How does Britian's landscape and lawn care compare with the States? Are you doing more Gardening than landscaping? What does a "Landscaper" or LCO use as typical equipment?

And yes - there should a Union Jack Smilie...

Hi, check out my first posting, there are a couple of pics on there that show the average size garden. Very few gardens have acres of land; it's just to valuable for building. A recent development in North London of houses that sell for £1 million have gardens less than 100ft long

I for one am very glad to have you on board. It's always interesting to view lawn care/ garden care from different perspectives. I don't know how to get the administrators to put a Union Jack on the smileys but maybe they will read this and help out. Gotta love those guys down under also. And can't leave out Canada.

We never seem to hear from Western Europe but I would enjoy that also.

Here you go, I fly one for you.
