Anyone from Eastern PA?

Hey guys,

I'm in Bucks County and work primarily in New Hope (also work in Levittown, Langhorne, Yardley, Washington Crossing, Doylestown.)

Anyone work in the area? Just thought it would be cool to bounce some ideas around

Thanks!

I'm to too far from you. I'm in Northern Berks Co just south of the blue mtn. I'm brand new but I'm starting up this spring. I worked in construction for a few years out of college. I was a site superintendent in Savannah GA then moved home to PA to work as a project manager for a commercial construction company. I then took a job teaching wood shop and Drafting at a local school district, but was laid of after 2 years. I'm now teaching shop class in Schuylkill county. Money is real tight for me these past few years since becoming a teacher so I thought I'd give this a go for some income during summer. I was doing side jobs in construction but it got too risky for me. I'd have several thousand dollars invested in a job and if a customer decided to stick me, I'd be out too much money and I simply can't afford that right now. I'm hoping property maintenance will be a better way to go. This way, if a client sticks me, I'm only out a few gallons of fuel and an hour or 2 of my time.

Good luck this season, keep me posted as to how business is going for you out that way. The guy I bought my ZTR is down near you. I'm not sure of his company's name but he does a lot of weekly accounts in your area. He was a real nice guy

what's the name of your company? I'm in he Bernville area and I went to Millersville. I have some friends that live down in Ephrata. I'm always looking to network with local guys. I'm in need of a tree service guy, a planting/mulch guy, an applicator and a hard scape guy I can refer clients to. I'm not too interested in doing installs and have ZERO desire to become a licensed applicator. This is my part time gig. my company;s name is MJ Services

Southern Berks here. Part time lawn maintenance for the time being. When I can get a full time crew going I'd like to get into hardscape.
