Was landscaping and maintenance what you enjoyed doing, or were the power equipment, nursery and the floristry?
Years back, we were only Landscape Maintenance and Construction. We did make money but, started the nursery to get my dad out of the way. He was a Portuguese "LEGAL" immigrant with a great work ethic but, small ideas. We soon after, started growing the business quickly, maybe too quickly.
So, I personally did not care for the nursery or the flower shop. I was always a landscaper. I have to admit though, I did like the Power equipment side. Went to conventions, met with manufacturers and inventors of much of the equipment out there. It was great, until my PE manager stole about $100,000 from us.
