True, through the summer I run a crew of 4 mowing full time. I try to stay on that crew, or have my foreman there. Meanwhile we will have a crew running dirt work. Bobcat, dump truck, trackhoe, ect doing new lawns. Also try to keep some body bush hogging most of the time. Around now I lay everyone off except maybe one guy and I do the hit and miss mowing, and stay busy with bobcat work, and line up drainage and concrete/pavement renovation jobs for winter. I also get caught up on farming...

Man that looks like some good junks of firewood. I agree, I enjoy cutting up actual logs and things like that much more than just trimming off branches.

you just make them THINK they are getting a deal....say you want $400 for a job, you tell them "well, normally I would charge $450, but for you I'll do it for $400" and they go nuts cuz they think they are getting such a good deal.
