Didn't mean for that to sound cynical. The word is that another outfit in our area bought his business out. I met him one time, very professional personally and nice operation. I was not aware of their size until seeing the pictures. We have many large well run operations in the Triangle region of NC.

I can assure you my friend that the business has never been for sale, nor has it ever been purchased. Still alive and kicking over here. Building a new house....I have been spending my time on it, and not on lawnsite. I will try and update soon!

My sincerest apologies. I had hoped it was not true and am very glad to hear the news was just contractor gossip. I've seen some of your companies work and it is very impressive. You have been and continue to be (I believe) a very good role model for local lawn and landscape businesses.

This Picture looks like a credit union install.
We've done a few of these, here recently as well.
I maintain irrigation at over a dozen branches.

I must say im very impressed with your setup and operations!

Very neat and organized!

I would love to see more of your irrigation trucks & setup when you get the time to post some pictures.

Im a midsized irrigation co. with about 700 (& growing) clients. Based here in wilson, we travel pretty far for good sized installation projects and stay about an hr or so for our service contract clients.

Ive been posting on lawnsite for yrs. but normally stay in the irrigation section.

As many have said before me, I now have someone who is an honest hardworking man that I can aspire to be. Not many business men in this line of work can say that they have not cheated alittle, other than you. I would love to take classes from you if you ever offer them.

Thanks for sharing
