WHERE ARE THE WV PEOPLE AT ?
I live in the west part of virginia bordering West Virginia
Does anyone have any experience cutting grass in the Romney WV area. I cut grass in Maryland for a few years. I was succesful and new what kind of equipment was needed for that area. Now I'm considering moving to Romney West Virginia. It's a small town, there are big beautiful homes, small average homes and junky houses and mobile homes with junk cars and fallen down trees covering the land. The land varies from flat to darn right mountain sides and everything in between. With gas costing so much and the way properties are spread out I'm thinking I will have to charge higher prices here but I think the average folks around here wont want to spend a lot of money on lawn care. I'm hoping someone in the area could share a little input and give me some sugestions or comments about what I should expect. I seem to see a lot of garden tractors being used by most of the home owner. I was thinking of getting some walk behind commercial mowers such as a 52" Ferriss dual hydro. What does everyone think. Will this mower be a good choose and will I be able to charge as much as I did in Middle River Md?
