So a month ago we finally signed a 2 year contract to take over a companies full portfolio and today was our first day...................sooo much work to do! will definitely be taking lots of before and after pictures at these sites and post. There are a total of 16 apartment complexes all about 25 acres in size each. Since the previous landscaper got a 30 day notice they didn't do any work the last month so now we have to go in there and pick up the slack, Its ok its only going to make us look better when we turn these properties around in a months time.

How many trucks you got? I'd assume by your name you run mostly Dodge?

I used to have a Jeep SRT8. I actually only own 3 dodges, 1 crew cab 2500 cummins, and a couple hemis 1500's.
The rest are 2500 Silverados or Sierras 6.0 liters and a couple duramaxs. When it comes to gas trucks the 6.0 vortec's have worked out the best for us.
On average we have about 15-17 trucks.
