I am more interested they will continue to be satisfied with their service then I am trying to get a fair price off people.
What you looking to get into next, my man?

Me myself sure would like to get into the roll off dumpster business. If I only had the means an the knowhow!

Making the move!

Well men, im finally making the move from my full time spray company which ive been doing for 12 yrs to full time lawncare and landscape next spring. ive been mowing since I was 12 and could never take on more than 20 accounts since I spray 50 hrs a week. I am simply fed up w the big business b.s. If you guys do not do weed and feeds and are seeking someone who green's, put down crabgrass/grub control correctly and takes care of the weeds please send people my way. DM if we can help each other please. Wish me luck gents.

PS I am not a hater but a supporter. I wave to fellow industry members.

My Stihl FS 90R crapped out on me today.

Awesome. I'm still trying to catch up from Wednesday.
Had an old guy mumble something about paying for a job not completed when I mentioned what happened and that I didn't get to trim inside two old flowerbeds the size of a truck tire.

Really? Really?

Find someone else to mow your lawn next year.
Maybe the teenage hacks that were screwing you over prior to me taking you on will come back.

Get a back up and shrug it off. Very tough week with this rain. Many don't understand.
