On sunset. If you take 60 to kansas expressway turn right on kansas. Take kansas down to sunset turn left on sunset. Sunset is the light after battlefield there is a gas station on the corner of kansas and sunset. When you turn left on sunset ewing is the 3rd drive on the right I think you will see the sign and their truck sitting out front.

Just think about it long and hard before you jump into it. You have to fight hard to make a good living cutting grass in this economy. Im pretty sure the market is saturated in every town. The drought this year has been awful for us. We had 3 weeks downtime this summer since it was so hot and dry nothing was growing in our area.

Seems like alot of people ive talked to in my area just want to get into it because they see a few of the larger lawn maint companies in SWMO that have 3 or 4 new Diesel trucks, nice new trailers full of brand new mowers, skid steers and all sorts of other nice new equipment. They just think its a business that will make you rich but they dont realize those guys might be 300k in debt. Not trying to talk you out of it but do not do it because you think you are going to end up making a fortune. Do it because you have experience in this type or work and will actually enjoy the type of work involved.
