    I'm trying to start up in Longmont. I hope the weather stays nice for a bit. Talking about snow again tonight. I need some customers to get some $$ to buy some equipment. How long have you been doing this? Have any equipment? I'm real interested in the organic, feed the soil kinda thing. Looking to get some clean up/renovations with continued maintenance. Been playing with compost and my own yard for years. Lots of competition around town for a new guy.

    I am glad I found this website. I was laid off in January. I been doing some yards on the side the last 3 years and decided this was the opportunity for me to jump into this business for real. I set up LLC, set up business bank acct, filing with city and looking into insurance. Trying to make it all legit. I have lots of hand tools, a junk home mower and a '90 Dakota with more than 200K mi. Last year I bought a Stihl FS90R trimmer. I was talking with a local dealer a couple days ago about a Honda 21" commercial for $1250. Gotta make some money to invest in some quality equipment.
    MFS - I intend to get set up with a website, but equipment is on the top of my needs list. Those are some great pics on your site. I need the equip and experience (clients) to make yards look like that.
    Lawnbutch - I would love to see what your Snapper does. I've never worked a 32". I know I need a quality 21" for the residential I'm starting with.

    Hey guys I am moving to the Denver area with a promotion from my job. I used to run a big lawncare and landscaping company in the Kansas City area. My question is what kind of grass do you have out there? I have about 200lbs of turf fescue with some rye and if it will work I will bring it out ot overseed my yard with.
