ya a lot of mine are drying up too! =( I am ready for a little break, but really don't want to go to 10 days yet. Personally I LOVE the heat, I work harder and get crazier =D But the guys don't much care for the heat. At least it's better than getting rained out every day like this spring. Z-man, you deal with Bradstreet much? what are you running for a mower?

hey everyone i need some help bad... I live in bangor and have been mowin lawns since i was 13 for people. I got a full time job delivering car parts for a local company. i hate it. I got a few good lawns that i still mow. One is Exide Batterys. Ive had them for 4 years now and he is 100% sattisfied with my work. I got a few residential that i do as well. Problem is i want to become a full time landscaping company. I want to travel all over the state and do pretty much anything, obviously not mowing an hour away but you know. anyways i have bad credit and no family support to help me get a trailer and at least a rider. Ive done a lot of work and busted my @$$ with hand rakes shovles push mower etc. does anyone have any advice to help me get going with some mowing jobs and maybe how to find landscaping jobs. thanks

I'm going to get a below the rail 56" box, and am thinking I'm gonna keep a ratchet set, cresent wrenches, floor jack, tow strap, ratchet straps, chain, fire extunguisher, and some other things. Also going to mount a full size axe to the under side of the lid.
