I bet it's always nice having a big place like that!! And probably a big head-ache sometimes too.

Hey guys I got a new fence, cantilever. Has anyone bought the motor part and hooked it up them selves. The people that installed the fence want $3,000 to install one. I figured if the parts are avaliabe to me I can do it.

If anyone has done this or know of places I can get the correct parts, please let me know.

Help Me!

Is the market being flooded with new landscapers with the auto industry/economy doing so poorly in mich.I am starting a new service in 2007 found a guy wanting to dump 15 residential accounts so grabbed those.Not to sure how many more I want to push for because I am still presently working another job.If job folds I am shooting for maybe 35 all together first year.I already have created buisness cards and flyers but waiting till first of the year to distribute.Also want to learn more about makeing commercial bids/proposals like how to estimate jobs square feet/yards/acres or what else to look for.I think lots of guys in the industry willnot want to give info but if you are secure in your reputation/workmanship/priceing should be enough to go around.
