I know we have some Midland/Odessa guys on here. I know things out there were looking dire just like a 2011 repeat by midsummer with the water restrictions. They just showed some flooding in that neck of the woods and I'd like to hear from you guys if the rain gets you out of trouble by the end of the weekend.

Howdy, im just now finding out about this forum, looks great! Im a graduate of Texas A&M University with a Horticulture degree. my emphasis was landscape management. i did an internship and thought it was great, but then i didnt like working for someone and they reap all the benifits. So i started Native Roots Landscaping LLC. I am based out of Rockwall, Texas. i will be soon up and running come JAnuary 2013.

Does the place you did the internship know all that equipment is missing yet? How did you manage to collect all that stuff already?

Is that one of those trust fund eggs? My kids will have trust fund money coming from my mother. I have a trust fund customer who has spent $150K with me in the last six years.
