I use to cut Don Nelson's daughters house (old coach from mavericks) She was a great neighbor. And whenever the mavericks were in town I got courtside seats.

I was PM'd or Emailed before by someone that took care of Brittany Spears "palace" (secluded) in Louisiana, but I don't remember who it was. We don't have much celebrity status around here. NFL player Andre Rison is from here and has a few houses around here, but I think he's too busy trying to pay child support to take care of them.

I have this one customer who isnt a celebrity, but stupid loaded!!!!!! In his 4 car garage, which actually holds 5 he has a Brand New Escalade ( $7-10k in wheels), a H2 (with $7-10k in wheels), a Ferrari F-1, Porsche Carrera, A jag, and then he uses a Dodge 1500 for just driving around.

The house is a monster, it is on a lake with a Boat, Jet skis, etc....

In the past, I have taken care of the lawns for several Boston Bruins, Celtics and Red Sox players. Ohh and the Bass Player(?) from Godsmack, Tony Rombola. Also, a local celebrity. The host of a local morning radio show, Gregg, from the Morning Buzz.

My boss used to work down in Conn., Grenich area. He used to take care of Martha Stewart's place, Mel Gibson's estate, and Victor Borge.

I'd rather not say the name but I take care of a NFL Player that plays for the Redskins. He is never really home that much, but has a very nice house in a nice neighborhood. His landscaping is also very nice.

Is a politician a celebrity?

I've worked for about 5 years for a former state legislator. Everyone in town recognizes his name so he provides me with a great referral source. He doesn't mind me using him for testimonials.
