HappyGrass Lawncare Pics

Figured everyone else is doing it I might as well too. This last year has been a good one. This time last year I had a 1998 Chevy s10 and a 5x8 trailer. To answer any quesitons:
Truck is a 2007 Chevy 2500HD 6.0 4x4
Trailer is a Pace Journey 7x16
Airbags are Firestone ride rite airbags (one of the best investments made)
Dump insert is Truckcraft, bought it new a few weeks ago along with the trailer and it has been a life saver.
Any questions ask away!
Interior equiptment, and work pics will follow soon.

That is a beautiful set-up! I love the Chevy 3/4 ton with 6.0 in it! A beautiful trailer...just an all round nice rig! I am definitely jealous. Can't wait to see the equipment and work pics.

Thanks a lot of time went in to deciding exactly what I wanted, I'm happy though.

Its been a great year. With many of my competitors running shody, unreliable buisnesses, the door has really opened up for me. I provide an honest service and a great product and the rest just follows suit. More of my success comes from how I've decided to run my buinsess than the actual work I do, however I take equal pride in both.

Also, I've experienced nearly an 80 percent growth over the past year, meaning work has nearly doubled, and 90% of that was due to word of mouth. Think about this next line, it may be common sense, but I dont think enough people take it to heart.

"People love referring a good product because it in turn, makes them look good" Really think about that line, its the basis for most of my work really.
