    I've got 7 years experience. That experience is from about 1990-1997; four of those years were with a church maintaining 80 acres on a weekly basis, 10 acres were woods, 10 acres is a cemetery, and roughly 15 acres of parking lots and buildings (my guess). We maintained baseball diamonds, soccer fields, landscaping and of course grass. I also have 3 years mowing and landscaping with a commercial operation where we mowed both residential accounts, towards the end of my employment with them we started landscaping.

    I've been lurking off and on here for about a year.

    Keep nurturing that sports field maintenance - Very niched market and very profitable!

    Let me know if I can help.

    Thanks, It's been 15 years since I've maintained a ball diamond, and that was just dragging and lining it with lime several weeks a year and a couple of times a week. The ball fields saw mostly church based Little League teams, and some grown up softball leagues, the two big diamonds were used for the school/high school softball and baseball teams. The school was part of the church, like most Christian schools that I am familiar with.
