Grahams Lawn Care

Hey Guys. Finally decided to start a thread. I started my business back in Feb. We're now going into may and I have 7 accounts so far. Really shocked, because my goal for the year is only 10 accounts. Might actually do better this year then I thought. Anyways, I'm sure you guys are looking at this thread to see pictures. I don't have much right now, gonna take more on my sat. Run. I have 2 yards and some maintenance work to do on the truck and equiptment.

My Truck:
Dodge Ram 2001 V8 5.9L Now has a black hood and a crack in the windshield. Long story but this is my work/daily truck.

Most of us have humble beginnings. Just keep grinding and do good work and you'll be fine.

Got quite a few phone calls in the past few days. A little shocked to be honest. Grabbed up a new account on beachside. Now I currently have 4 accounts that are all within 3 blocks of eachother. Starting to keep myself busy. Got 2 phone calls today from craigslist.

I'm going to be doing maintenance and re-organizing the truck/equipment. So I'll be taking a few pictures to post up here later.

It's been a crappy day. Picked up a new lawn, but it rained so badly I was having trouble cutting the new yard with all this rain. I did a decent job for first cut, but sadly I didn't edge all that well. Going back monday to clean up the edging.
