A few post but figured I would explain!

Ok so here it is I grew up around a lawn care business and have about 4 years of experience. I am looking to start my own company this spring and have posted a couple of times on this forum but, it is so hard to get responses. I have seen this many times with new guys looking for help, but never seem to get any how do we go about getting help?

Oh and by the way I could have 6 contracts to at least start with as long as I become legit by spring, and possibly more. Need help getting going to even see it worth my time to advertise. Here is a link to one of my posts that I need the most help with.

Welcome aboard and I will chime in as to why some post whether by you or another new comer are noted answered/replied. Most of the questioned a new member post have generally been already answered. Try using the search engine on this websites and you would be surprise as to how many responses will come up to your questions. Such as how to go legit, getting a dba, insurance, which mower is the best, how do I bid/get a commercial contract, etc. Iíve done a lot of searches on this website and some have taken me up to an hour to read. This forum has a wealth of information supplied from LCOís.
3 lawn mowers
1 aerator
1 walk behind edger
2 BP blowers
3 trimmers
1 multi tool w/ hedge trimmer and edger attachment
2 shovels
1 rake
1 broom (worn out needs replacement soon)

Exactly what Flatop said, the search option is your friend, use it and you will save your self alot of time waiting for people to post repeated replies. I see the same questions posted multiple times a week by the newguys just trying to start out, to the point that I only look at the posts if I have already been through all of the other forums and am just trying to kill time.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!
