Next semester I am not attending school full time in order to work more and I will still graduate next spring after another half course load. Looks like it should be a good year for me!
Congrats! real good work man.

Thanks!

Heres a few pics from the past few weeks. The stripes aren't the best because both hills are really uneven and the tires on my mower are bald. I just had my new tires put on today and mowed my large commercial for the first time this year.

How big is your large commercial? How do you like that cub cadet commercial? Hows it compare to the Snapper?

I dont know exactly how large but if you put all of the grass areas together id say maybe 2 acres. But its all weed whacking. Takes me 6-8 hours. And the cub has been good so far! I havnt used it a ton because my helper usually uses it and i use the snapper because its bigger. Its basically a lesco mower.

Doesn't it suck when people won't pay for services you want to offer?
