Great Posts so far

Our company does all enhancement work, mulching, building, pruning tree work, design, hardscaping, etc. Once i get it figured out i will get a contract signed so he doesn't steal my costumers and what not.

I do agree with some over site. I plan on training him for the next three months before I leave. When I am away he will send me all the proposals to be checked before sending them off to the clients. I also plan on coming back to check in twice a month.

I know i shouldn't put all my eggs in one basket but i guess this is a risk i am going to have to take.

Any more suggestions on ways to pay him?

Is he going to be employee or part owner? If employee, then you need to provide him with a truck and pay him fair wage - how many hours will he have to put in? If he's going to be part owner, then a profit sharing method might work. This is a very risky move and I hope you won't be stressed and frustrated if it doesn't work like you expect.
