Nice setup man! We started very similar. Check out our thread under Earth and Turf RI. We started at your age with similar setups, and we have some photos of us now.

I have to give you a lot of kudos for the fact that you are out and getting it done while 99.9% of the other punks your age are sitting their fat axxes on the couch doing drugs, playing PS3 and getting their girl friends pregnant.

Keep it up man. Your parents have got to be proud of ya.
I couldn't have said it much better than that...

Keep up the good/clean work. You are doing an EXCELLENT job! Keep up on school as well, and by the time you graduate HS, and your friends are going off to college, you'll probably be making more money than they would after their degrees; However, if you decide to go to college as well, good for you!

Anyway, it puts a smile on my face to see a 14yo with more ambition than my 29 year old brother!

I hadn't......... in the early days I was Brickman Lawn Care. I sold that business and drove truck for 7 years.

Now its Brickman Property Services LLC.

As for the name, Brickman Group can KMA.
They can't stop me from using my last name in my business name.
They don't operate in my state, so I doubt I'll ever have an issue.

Knowing that your last name is Brickman makes more sense. I thought maybe you had just tryed to copy it. Sorry for giving you any slack.

Wow, good for you. Keep it up, really. You are possibly the most well rounded 14 year old I've ever seen. Your parents have done a good job so far...

No problem.


I wouldn't want to copy BG.
I've heard they hire a lot of illegals and don't do that great of work.
Neither are some thing I want my business name associated with.
