I do enjoy that, on newly built houses as well as removing an existing landscape & reinstalling an entire new lawn & landscape.

1. Trees ... first and foremost my favorite part of horticulture.

2. Enjoy interacting and visiting with people.

3. I like problem-solving ... good way to apply it.

4. Working outdoors is awesome.

5. Can set my own schedule for the more part.


Since I started photography too, the trees and people part have definitely helped me in that department too.

Awesome. I hear you on #1 especially. Used to be into photography as well. That kinda subsided as I got busier with this stuff. Been meaning to get back into it as I think it would really help the business. Love the picture with the Mustang. Those are some serious trees!
