I don't know if I could name ten. But I do feel like Exact Rototilling, LarryinAlabama, Lawn Jockey, Jim Lewis of course, Ridin Green and Sildoc have all been very helpful to me and provided me a vision of where I want to take my business.

Hey Sean I just can't fit them all in the top 10.
So my vote goes for all members of lawn site.

I believe Jim Lewis is #1. He is knowledgeable and has obviously built a good size successful company. The big difference is he shares a ton of information in a supportive and positive way.

Proturf and ETW are fun to follow as well.

There are a ton of smaller ones that post bits and pieces of good info from time to time.

I learn so much every single time I log on. Of course from guys like ETW but also from my young friend Arena Landscaping who is only 15 (i think) years old.

Guys like DVS and RJ make me crack up constantly (obviously two hardscape ruffians)

Then you got guys like Pro-Turf and TThomas that just make you want to get up 3 hours earlier each day to try and catch up with their success.

I feel like LarryinAlabama and Richard Martin are the landscaping Dads that I never had....

I love reading JContracting's stuff because him and I are very close business wise....

I think that Efficiency has a lot of intelligent stuff to say, and so doesn't AW landscapers...

Who doesn't love looking at GoldPro's amazing stripe photos?

And who doesn't love checking in to see what the Krazy Kajun is up to?

Jim Lewis' posts and pictures are priceless.

I could literally go on and on and on....... I take so much out of this forum it's ridiculous. There hasn't been one time that I have logged on that I haven't learned something. And the main point is that whether somebody has 50 posts or 5000, if you are here and you are actively participating, chances are I have learned something from you.

P.S Forgot to mention Sean Adams but that pretty much goes without saying.....
Thanks for the kind words! Right when I started reading this thread I thought the same thing.



These are all in no particular order but the 3 big names:

Jim Lewis
ETW
Pro-Turf

I'd say Djagusch & Ryde307, both are from MN and there are not many from MN on here and both know systems and crews are the answer to growing their companies.

TonyGreek as well for the web insight.

I will not mention anyone.

So many have given great answers. I can not remember them all. So being I can not praise all due to poor memory I will not praise some.

To me it is not about the number of times someone taught me something. Even those that only taught me one thing. Their contribution made me better. For if that one person did not make that one post that would be one less thing that I would of learned.

Though I will say thank you to all because your participation has made Lawnsite what it is.

Tonygreek not only for it but also marketing wisdom and tying the two together

Jim Lewis

Dvs hardscaper

Smallaxe doesn't get nearly enough credit for the information he brings to the site

And many more that I can't think of right now.
