Hey guys I didn't see the replys sorry for the delay.

I'm work mostly in Tulsa, but I try to work wherever the work is.

I live in Claremore,and have some accounts in Claremore.

I'm trying to do this full time after getting laid off from my job.

prices I will give a mor detailed reply when I'm not so tired, but what I'm aiming for is $50.00 per hour on all my work if trimming hedges takes me an hour I want 50.00 bucks. Just as an example.

Oklahoma lawn businesses

I am interested in knowing if anyone from Oklahoma does snow plowing and if so what equipment you use and how you charge. I realize that this should probably be a question on plowsite.com but I wasn't sure if any of you went to that site.

Also, how large are your businesses???? Are you a solo operator or do you have employees. Just tell your story about your business.

Please...

I run three crews in NW OKC and Edmond. 2 mowing crews, and a "go do whatever needs to be done crew".

I am mostly high end residential, but will soon be moving up to larger commercial props.

After 7 years of business I was able to put over $25,000 down payment on a home. I plan on having all of the things I want in life by working hard, and saving money. Mowing lawns in Oklahoma.

My crews require no supervision. This is a huge benefit. They just get after it. I am then able to manage the business in ways that I couldnt normally do if I was holding a weed eater all day.

Full blown landscaping is my main goal. Possibly to open a nursery or some type of garden center.
