Nice equipment! I love the Lazer Z. Is that a cub cadet zero turn? Do you have a blower attached to it for the catcher? I can't tell from the pics.

You're way ahead of me at your age. I started out doing all the trimming for a local company. We worked long hours...some days I didn't know if I would make it. One day I finally decided to start working for myself. I dug up 7 yards, bought a used mower, trailer and one new trimmer. The next spring I tripled my business. By the middle of summer I was doing about 30 accounts a week. Good luck take the criticism and use it to your advantage...you can never learn too much.

Nice equipment and keep up the good work! Be careful with all that washing, water can do some serious damage if you get it in the wrong spots frequently. Better to blow it off...

I too was once a my machine has to look perfect guy. But, once you start pulling the trailer out at 7A and pushing it back at 8P you realize a little dirt never hurt.
