labor camp info

That was very helpful info on the labor camps. I have been using college guys this summer to mow for me. But I think I might start using the Plano labor camp.

Hello guys,

Anyways I have been working with a buddy for a few years and decided I wanted to do this on my own... unfortunatley I have to work out of the beater car until the end of next yr... however i am very professional

Well I will try to establish residential accounts in denton county, I live in the colony, so if you ever see me honk or stop to talk... ok it sounds like im trying to get a date or filling out a resume here so im looking forward to having y'all as friends...

Lesco

Anyone use Lesco products in the DFW area? I was wondering who your sales associate was if you do.

Hey Guys,

Everyone making the big bucks?? I hope so.

Shawn, welcome to lawnsite. I wish you well and think you'll find some valuable insight here.

We use Lesco quite often. Gary Johnson is who I deal with mainly.

Is there anyone who does work in the Lake Worth area?? We get calls every once and a while and would be happy to refer them. I lost the card of the guys we used to refer.

Remember, Fall is just around the corner. lol

Well it sounds like your getting everything together. Don't get discouraged yet, this time of year usually gets us some additional work due to others quitting due to the heat and such. Do you have any t-shirts w/ your name and # on them? Try bartering with a local shop, it can help both of you. Good luck.
