When your lawn is the disgrace of the neighborhood.

Mine is dead, except for the crap that the hydrodseeders threw down when they fixed the utility trench.

Six or seven million feet of fertilization a week and I haven't fertilized the homestead in over a year. Great Dandelions, better Poa trivialis, Japanese Beetles that belong in a museum.

My 21" mower, the only one I own, is broken. I haven't put its replacement on the to-do list.

Sprayers, spreaders, trucks, trailers, computers, all we need - a stinking mower? Are you crazy? Do I look like I'm made of money?

I think I'm going to call Dr. Phil.

You're know you're an landscaper when you take off your hat everyday and note the increasing sweat and dirt line surrounding the brim (which can never fully be washed out). While disgusting you wouldn't dare leave home without it the next day.

When you mow in your sleep.... When you think using a line trimmer should be an Olympic sport....

When you can tell what kind of blower the competitors crew is using on the home behind the one you're servicing, and laugh mockingly, knowing your Redmax enables you to be jumping back in the truck when their feeble sissy blower is restricting their performance....
May peace and blessing from the LORD be with you, Fellow Hot Rod Freaks!!

You might be a landscaper if?

When you are more worried about the amount of grass on a accounts sidewalk than in the CAB of your truck!

You give your Z more oil changes than your wifes van!

When you can talk on the phone, eat lunch, tie your work boot, all while strinng you trimmer!

When you should be sleeping but thinking of the 8 ton of river rock that you have to move the next day by yourself!
Sometimes you need to just GIT R DONE!!!!

1. You know you're a landscaper when you drink 2 gallons of water or more a day.

2. When you got the biggest,baddest most powerful lawn mower on your street.

3.When you have a pile of yard waste the size of a boat in your backyard.

All the really funny ones where taken

Mabey this thread should have been titled You Know your a Lawncare Operator instead of You know your a Landscaper when...cuz I am a full time Landscaper and my shovel is much more important to me than my mower .And you Know your a Landscaper when you wear your kneepads so much you forget to take them off and go walking around like an idiot with a pair of Nailers on after work,to the bank,gas station,hardware store,bar.
When your shades are standard equipment and you go thru
4 pairs a summer cuz you leave them on posts,rock,porches,patios and under plants and in ditches
AND when you lay down in bed everybone in your body pops and creaks and you shower is the same color of the soil at the last job you did.
