Walking in the 100 plus degree heat with high humidity after one lawn you'll look like you got pushed in the pool lol

Opening a branch in a larger city a couple hours away from me is a short term goal of ours. Could you go into some more detail about how you have gone about opening a new branch? Did you buy an exsisting biz out or did you just start from scratch? Will accounting and book keeping still be done at original branch? How much time do you plan to spend at each branch?

No he hasn't or else he would have been asking a million questions. My .02 is the guy is clueless and he would get eaten alive in Sunny South Florida. The toughest part is resetting his expectations.

All i can tell you is keep a real tight route, be a little on the high side with pricing but not too high....its a lot cheaper here than in the north...but it is year round..there is a lot of comp. true but there is no shortage of work if you are good...we run 3 crews of 3 and its not too bad....good luck

I would love to see someone mowing lawn In Cape Coral with a 72 inch mower. Had I a 52 grasshopper when I lived there and I thought that was kind of big for the area.I had a 18 foot enclosed trailer there too . My trailer keep getting run into by mexicans in work trucks.Speaking of accidents whats with all the school bus accidents in Cape Coral??
