We tried a few...not the best conditions..some are ok, most are messy. My fear is the grass taking off next week and more rain then falling behind on cleanups, etc

Plymouth Lawn Account For Sale

I have a residential lawn account in Plymouth one mile from M-14 and Beck. Normally took me 45 mintues to do with a 48" walk behind including whipping, edging, and blowing by myself. I charged $30 for the past 2 years. I am selling the account because I had 2 others on the block, but they went into forcloure so I have just the one and it's to far away from any others to make any money. They have a sprinkler system so it needs to be cut every week, and they were talking about revamping/adding some landscaping last year. I told them today the situation and that I would find them someone to replace me and they understood and were happy I would do that for them. I will contact the 3 highest offers for the account for an over the phone interview because I don't want my name being tarnished by some jackwagon butchering their lawn. Please email me your contact info, equipment you have that you would use, and your offer for the account. Thank You.

How much do you really think your going to get for ONE account that sounds underpriced?

Have no fear, the grass is near. Soon its long then its not then we have a big long drought. So we are never happy, until we get paid!

Claen ups and lawns will be all done when its long and wet
