What we started with, and what we have now!

Well I started my dream (business) in 2002 at the age of 19.. I love landscaping and the creative side of it.. Originally I started it with a focus on lawn mowing... But had the chance to do a job for a customer... I look back on it, yea I didnt it for nothing and worked my ass of to get it done to make pennies... But it opened the doors to so much more!

So going on my fourth season in business ive come along way!!

The things I have today, i never thought id have!

1999 Ford F350 dually crew cab DIESEL
2002 Chevy Silverado 1500 w/ Western 7' 6" plow
6' 8" by 12' foot Maxi Dump Trailer 2004
8'6" by 18' enclosed Trailer 2005
Exmark Lazer Z 60" 31hp 2005
Exmark Lazer Zhp 48" 2002
Bobcat S185 with cab and heat 2005 and Light Material Bucket 4 snow
BMF trailer for skidloader and such 2005
2 backpack blowers
3 string trimmers
2 hedgers
1 edger
1 bededger
Miscellaneous equipment/tools

What do you have? and how long have you been doing this?
