Comprehensive Landscape Management -- The beginnings....

Figured I would post some pics of the journey. Starting small... real small, part time and taking it from there..

Work shop is the garage
Starting with a 6x14 open dual axle trailer (old but it works.. needs a paint job!)
Pulling it with our '09 Honda Pilot Touring

Current Equipment as of 4/14:
'05? MTD Pro 36 wb
'13 Echo PAS266 power source
*w/ line trimmer, edger, hedge trimmer attachments
'14 Echo PB-755 blower
'11 Honda HRR216 self-prop 21in mower

Backup trimmer and blower are craftsman...

My old beastly trailer. Juset had a new coupler welded on and the guy from the trailer place loved it. Said its built really well. As an owner of the trailer replair and sales store, he actually suggested I put ~$1000 into this to upgrade to new axles/hubs (need to go 5 lug) rather than buy a whole new trailer..

Like an ass I forgot to take pics this weekend... my 1st weekend of mowing for clients. Ill have to remember to take some pics this week. I need pics to be able to post on craigslist, facebook, and my website..

I picked up a bunch of garage type organizers and things of that nature the other day. Hopefully Ill find some time this week to put up the racks and hooks. Should help to clean up the garage a lot.

I do pretty much all my own work on our cars so I have a lot of tools already which should only help with this type of work and equipment...

lol always got a beer within arms reach!

There is a guy down the street from me who I recently found out owns a landscaping co as well. He actually has a woodstove in the garage with a huge TV. Not a bad way to spend your time in the work shop!
