Thats cool do you move them to the weekdays in the summer then? I try and keep everyone on the same schedule all season. I also dont tell the majority of my customers I am in college I dunno all depends some I do some I dont but especially with the snow I want to try and be available to everyone asap. I have the feeling some wont hire me if I say I go to school they think I will stop work in September and stuff

mcGinn i saw that when I was sitting in class today. Its not bad. basic and to the point. I am not real good and critcism. One thing I can saw is put alot of pictures on I am a visual person So I put a ton on my site and they are all older ones I need to get more up from last season. You will keep coming up with new Ideas for it as time goes on, take a look at other peoples sites just dont copy them but sometimes looking at theirs will give you a better idea for yours get some pictures up there of landscape jobs etc

Most of my customers want their lawns mowed for the weekend so right now I have enough to mow all day friday. If it spills over to saturday none of them mind. So usually they expect me on friday. All of my main customers I have had since highschool and have been extremely loyal to me and given extra work. Also any new customer I have picked up has usually been one of their neighbors so they see that I am there all year round and I am dependable. I actually picked up the 4 new contracts last year because their lcos were inconsistant or didnt show up and 2 of them even paid more to have me. I think i have been lucky!

hey Rainmen I am from the south hills but travel all over. I have a job to do in Mcdonald and my attorney has a house in imperial i am doing alot of work at. i have been using Dave from rocks mulch and more. He has been bringing me alot of lime stone and dirt ot job sites out your way. He is very resonable. He brings me tri axels out and only charges me 50 bucks for delivery. Can't really beat that. Have you used him before or are there any other local guys i should know about if i need raw topsoil delieved.

Cool man, I definitely like it up in that part of the state. Less people, but I guess less business opportunities also.

Thanks for posting
