I have read a lot of guys on here that suggest taking a small engine repair course and a welding course. Unfortuneately, here in Hartford those are hard to find.
We do a large majority of the maintenance ourselves...but we do send out some of our bigger projects/repairs to a few local mechanics we know. Usually between all of us we can get most of our stuff repaired in our shop. I have never taken any courses...but i'm sure they would come in handy with the amount of maintenance & repairs that go on in this business..

Gret work. Pro Turf, you and ETW are by far the most impressive stories on this site. I would like to get into Hydroseeding within the next couple yrs. Looks to be very profitable.

Very good, EPA clean up site of contaminated soil from a metal recycling yard..... they dug out 180000 yards think think.... than filled with clean material, last step was some seeding
