Yep, I am actually thinking of running some ads in the local paper for these services in the couple of weeks. Might be a little early, but heck I am sending out my fall letter with the August bills that is for sure.

Hey guys. Just wondering if anyone does sports field mowing in southwest Ohio? Was curious as to what kind of price per acre sports turf was going for.

A little about me. I worked on a golf course in Naples, FL for the last few years but the economy got the best of the course and was forced to close. Now I am back home and was wanting to go out and start something on my own.

I would definitely appreciate any help. Feel free to PM me. Thanks in advance.

Congratulations Alan, how was it giving birth? lol j/k Hope everyone is good and Mom is home with the new born.


Did hedge trimming on Friday, did 2 more jobs today too. But I need to go back and finish the 2nd job though. Had not done these hedges in two years. They have their grandkid doing the lawn now for the past 2 years. So it never even crossed my mind about their hedges till they called on Saturday.

Did a lawn repair today, a friend had a garage and new drive put in, moved 30 yards of topsoil, plus about 10 yards of fill and spread in 8 hrs. Gotta go back tomorrow after I mow to seed still. I was a low baller on this one. The guy he got the topsoil from does concrete work and has a screener so he just screens what he gets from other jobs and sells it real cheap. He wanted huge money to come in and of course skim the topsoil off and regrade the whole back yard with his soil.

aw snap, i'mma have some pics soon of the "new" trailer I got. It's a 16' I picked up for 400 bucks, has 4 new tires on it, way over built gate, but it needs redecked and I'm having it sandblasted while the old deck is off. She'll look brand new when I'm done and I'll have about 650 in it. I love deals
