    I am 34. I had a lawn business in high school with 30 weekly customers. Spent last 10 years in our 55 year old family businesses, and recently moved to Maryland. I miss Ohio, but my wife's family lives here in Baltimore. Thus, we will stay here.

    Thus, I am going back into the lawn business. I don't have customers yet here in Maryland. Fortunately, I expect to get about 10 customers in a few weeks, thanks to my wife's large network of family here. I envision my business to grow substantially in year two.

    I've identified new equipment I'd like to buy, and thanks to 36 month financing, it's quite affordable. I'm still debating between Bobcat 48" and Lesco 48." I'm looking for advice on what to charge customers, etc. get work done faster. The more advice the better.

    MY schedule is flexible right now. I'm available most days / evenings with a day or two notice. I look forward to hearing from you.

    yep, that would be Bowleys Quarters, I just started something small last year simply because we have Long Beach Nursery, which is an ornamental grass wholesale nursery, mainly dealing w/ wholesale field stock and bare root mailorders, we do retail for the locals that stop by and have had a few ask about landscaping/installing the grasses. So finally last year I decided to just get into landscaping. Something Small/Part time to keep me busy on my off days doing something I like.

    Ok, right on Susquehanna? I am at the end on Middle River, but we just bought a shop up on Eastern!

    We are located in Bowleys Quarters, but have some apartment complexes and condos out in Owings Mills, Mays Chapel, and Reisterstown so we are always out that way. I believe you are located in Timonium as well?
