Connections. Lol well its true. Submitted a bid today bushhogging 101 un-developed lots today for a homebuilder, approx 17acres. Got a call from a homeowner I did a big landscape install for, we just finished up about 2weeks ago. Her yard won Garden of the Month. Real nice upscale gated community. Definitly an ego booster. Lol

Well a quick update , while I take a lunch break. The homebuilder I bid the bushhogg work for, just called me. I Won the contract for 6x mowing a year @ $1116.00 a mow.comes out to a shy over $65 an acre. They also asked me to submit a bid on trimming & spraying all the fence lines,around light poles, cable boxes, electric boxes, and fire hydrants. Its like 75 obstacles to trin/spray around and approx 0.4miles of fence line. I'm looking at putting a spray tank on my new tractor or maybe find an old golfcart to put a sprayer in the back.

I recommend a 4 wheeler instead of a golf cart.
