We are located in S. Maine and our 100% groth is a low number due to we didnt even include hydroseeding, or our retail mulch facilty along with misc services like irrigation. Our maintenance services should be approx 100% groth and we have 32 lawn set up a 5cents sqft at 22,000 sqft per property so that alone should bring in around $35,000 which 80% is profit. So no dreams here only trying to find reliable help.

( Homer we have openings and a company vehicle plus use of a 2,800sqft lake side condo in winter months for employees while plowing.) So come on up Homer we will put ya anywhere ya want.

Jim at TURF again ...

Yes I did ignore you guys and got the crapsman ... Reason? I didn't figure I needed an expensive mower just for one weekly mowing of 2 acres. (cheap, cheap, cheap). So now you suggest I buy a Murry push mower? That's what I replaced with the crapsman (just kiddin).

This fall I sold my half of the biz to my partner and Cin and I just put a down payment on a house. Its nothing fancy but its something to call home in the older neighborhood on the quiet side of town.

She doesnt want me to contract the mowing out our friend who does our duplex so this weekend I have to buy a YardMan 21" for the lawn and a Cub for the drive.

Heres the cub I have in mind:

That sure sounds appealing.

By the way, what is snow and what would you plant in it after you plowed it?

The lake house sounds cozy as heck. I could stay there while ya'll were plantin' huh?
