Grass Masters Lawn Care Pictures

Hey guys I'm always looking at everyone else's picture threads and finally decided to make my own. I started this business around my neighborhood when I was 12 and have slowly grown it over the years. I am now 19 and going into my Sophomore year at West Virginia University studying Wood Science and Technology with a minor in Small Business Entrepreneurship and Arboriculture. I don't have many pictures now but I will start to take more! Let me know what you think!

Here's my business card

This is some of of the equipment of a family friend that I have been helping with the building of his new house doing grading, masonry, brush hogging to keep the weeds down and more. He has done everything from scratch using his own machinery for the most part...





He has also has the backhoe attachment for this it was just off






And finally one day he pulled this old walk behind sickle bar out of one of his barns and said he had 3 others just like it and gave me it. Its was made by Jari in what he believed to be '52 has a 30" bar and a 4 horsepower Briggs and Stratton that you have to wind a rope around to start and the best part is, it still runs!!

And finally one of the Ranger up on the Race Point dunes in Cape Cod this is my first vehicle and I haul all my equipment around in it, I'm hoping I'll finally sell it this week after about 6 months of trying! I have been negotiating with a buyer for a while now... 7.3 Powerstroke here I come!

Quick little weeding job I did on a way overgrown bed that wrapped about 70 ft around a big patio

All of the sections looked like this:



This was after, but still before I did my final cleanup:



I dont mow this lawn the owner does, but you would think he would weed wack now and then... last time I was there I saw him assembling an electric ryobi weed wacker I suggested that since my gas powered trimmer would get clogged up with the tall grass and not work its best that he might consider buying a more powerful machine than battery powered and have better luck. He insisted that his machine would do the job just fine...
