Started in 2003 with a 3.5 HP 21" pushmower from Lowe's, weed eater bent shaft trimmer and a cheap blower on the back of my F-150. Mowed rental properties (three) of a friend of mine. I do this only part time but since then have built through word of mouth and customer referrals.

Now have 20 regular clients and have been expanding my landscaping services. Still have the F-150 towing my trailer and my JD zero turn. Husqvarna straight shaft trimmers, echo back pack blower. When I retire from my regular job in 10 years, plan to do this full-time simply because I love working outside and the smell of freshly cut grass. Wierd, I know, but hey that's me!
