Looking for any work you all can throw our way. With this economy we've gone into other areas of construction and service. We are still a lawn service company and looking for any sub work that you all need help with (out east of KC, Blue Springs, Grain Valley).

We have several big jobs coming up, but are always looking for decks, fences, garage doors, pole barns, etc. We would appreciate the referral to customers if it ever comes up with them (I know we rarely see them or even converse with them on our routes).

Also, my business partner and I are interested in adding chemical application to our list of services. I know where to go and sign up for the test...how difficult is the test? My business partner will be the one taking it and doing the applications...thanks for your responses in advance.

Anyone ever use the dye used that is sprayed on top of mulch to enhance the color. Where did you get it at?

Lesco used to have it. Maybe John Deere is still carrying it...

so one of my accounts was having some really big drilling going on in her backyard. They had a special company all the way from manhattan(KS) come out to do it. I was mowing another yard 3 houses down, when 2 OPFD trucks came rollin in, turns out when the auger hit 280' it broke a pocket of natural gas, not a natural gas line, but a pocket of natural gas. Very weird.

6 calls this week
6 new accounts

But to be honest my phone does not start ringing till May when people realize how much of a pain it is to keep doing it themselves.

i like the look and feel of zoysia for my front lawn, but have probably too much shade for it. Any similar grasses that would be better suited for a shadier lawn (small front lawn)?

I have a rental property in Overland Park. The address is 7216 W 61st St. The house is currently up on the market and I live in Florida. It was a rental property and now its vacant so I need the lawn maintained. I need a bid for the mowing, and possibly fertilizing. My realtor will monitor to make sure its being mowed. I need to be invoiced so I can write off the expenses on my taxes. You can either be paid by credit card or check. I'll take bids all week. Thanks.
Came across this on CL. Thought maybe one of you KS boys might be interested. The lot is 21,779 sqft.
