I want to concentrate on maintenance,but if that goes well, then other things, Glad I didn't lay out money for a plow and 4x4 this year. My little Ranger is doing just fine, Been thinking of getting a vinyl wrap for it , with a photo of a Deere rider,so that when I'm in the truck it looks like I'm on the mower. cute!I want to get into total agrdener type things like flower gardens, etc, will share more later.. thanks for writing, I hope to increasingly pick your brain for ideas in the future ha ha Just found this site pretty cool. How big is your business. Did I mention thet I'm just getting started, I hope to keep my 13 year old boy in pocket change etc later Morgan

We're in our fifth season. We don't do any maintenance, grass or snow, we're all landscape construction which keeps us too damn busy anyway. For the first two years of business we did garden maintenance, but for me it didn't really pan out, too many people doing it for nothing. The John Deere idea's a good one, everyone will definitely see you coming, but they might think you're from the Deere dealership, and try to buy your mower off you. Ocl we're actually based out of Belmont, but we keep a lot of our equipment at the Western Fairgrounds downtown. What kind of work do you do? Good luck getting rich, the pocket change thing is more likely in my experience, but at least it's a good tan. cheers

how are you finding the snow removal this year? at least no one's losing too much sleep. Do you go in any of the homeshows?
