An established pesticide applicator could gross $150k per truck per year.<p>Also an established 4 season grounds maint. company that has a lot of good commercial and<br>hi end residental work could turn big numbers<br>in Chicago.

In reply,<br>First I don't cut any lawns for people, too many other companys do that.<br>My firm found a nitch that most companys over look. I build Parks, playgrounds, ball fields. Reason is the Government always has money to spend, in my state the park districts are their own taxing body. As the taxing districts grow they put in new parks or remodel old ones. Some jobs I am the general contractor and on others 3 or 4 general contractors call me for the landscaping part, most times I'm the only landscaper they call! The hardest part is I cover 6 counties and can have crews 50 miles apart. <p>paul <p>check out my page, I have to up date it with this years photos, but it will give you an idea of my work.<br>http://hometown.aol.com/palnelson
