    Not a spec of dirt on anything, is this a new startup company?

    Actually, the mowers, trimmers and edgers all needed a cleaning when those pictures were taken…that's why I didn't post any shots of just the machines.

    The landscaping business was started this year. The woodworking business has been in business for almost 9 years. This shop was built a little over 3 years ago.

    I keep everything clean and organized because I'm a professional and presenting a clean organized professional appearance is part of my business model. I also regularly have clients visit my shop/showroom so it has to be presentable at all times…I don't want Mr. & Mrs. $$$ to get their clothes dirty when I'm asking them to sign a contract and hand me a large deposit check. The truck and trailer are also kept neat and organized and all tools are kept clean to present the same professional image when I'm in the field. I don't want a client or potential client to think that I was a messy, unorganized and inefficient contractor.

    By the way, I'm the third owner of the Scag (the deck really needs a paint job)…one of those trimmers is about 4 years old...the backpack blower is about 6 years old…the wheel barrow is about 4 years old. The Scag is the only tool that was used on a daily basis prior to me starting the landscaping business.

    Thats a nice setup you have for woodworking/cabinetry. With that slider and edge bander I bet you can pump some work out! NEVER seen a wood shop that ridiculously clean. Very impressive!

    Wow! I am super impressed. I have always had an interest and respect for woodworking... Love that piece and would love to see some more if you have photos handy... Not only is your trailer and equipment neat and tidy, it is also a very efficient looking set up. Not just where things are placed but also the choice of equipment. I run the very same set up! Same Scag, just swap out my Walker for your Hustler and tag Shindy in for the handhelds.... "I don't want a client or potential client to think that I was a messy, unorganized, and inefficient contractor." I love this quote! This is spot on and I just can not for the life of me understand how anyone would choose to manage their business otherwise. Seems like you are taking positive things like systems and organization that you learned from being in business for 9 years already and adapting them to your new venture in The Green Industry. Very impressive to say the least, and I must say kudos to you sir!

    Thank you and yes I can process cabinetry jobs pretty quick…in the second shop photo you can kind of see the double row line boring machine right behind the edge bander. A clean organized shop is so much more pleasant to work in and it really help with efficiency.

    As a former granite counter top fabricator and installer, I must say that desk is top notch. I particularly like how the edge by the plant goes from a eased edge to suddenly a ogee edge or maybe a 3/4 bevel? can't tell from the pics.
