    I have been mowing here for about three years and I have accumulated around 30 accounts (around 36 yards). Here is a list of equipment that I am going to include:

    Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle 50 inch cut w/homemade stripping kit- 530 hours
    the kit doesn't look fancy but does a hell of a job!
    I am also running X-blades, gives great discharge and cut
    this mower also has a manual discharge blocker
    Echo Trimmer SRM2400
    Echo backpack blower pb-603
    Toro 6.5 Horsepower self-propelled push mower
    6.5 x 12 semi enclosed trailer (I'll post picture) with shelves for gas cans
    and weededer
    Lawnpro Software and a laptop with all the customers info.

    All of this equipment has been put to some good use so there is some obvious wear, but it all still has a lot of future use left. I have been providing Lawncare for about seven years now. All through out highschool and through out college. I am finally ready to move on to bigger and better things, time to put my criminal Justice degree to work. I plan on moving to Indianapolis and getting on their police department. So I will have no use with this business any more. I am not getting out because this isn't great money, I'm getting out because I am ready to do something else. Owning a lawn business is a GREAT source of income and I am positive that whomever does get this will be greatly satisfied. If anyone does decide to buy this great investment I will be more than happy to work with them for as long as it takes to ensure that they will know the customers and what their expectations are. I will also be willing to train the person on whatever they need to learn, from edging with a weededer to putting in the perfect strips.

    Ok now for the price, I am asking for $7,500.00, or any REASONABLE offer.
    This, in my mind is one hell of a price for what you are getting. So if you have any questions or are interested please give me a call at 859-893-3266

    I think your price is more than fair, more like low in fact. Good luck though in your endeavors.

    I am actually located in Richmond. If you are thinking about moving down this way, you should check out richmond. My house here cost about 20,000 less than the one in lexington. I unfortunately only have about 7 yards in lexington.

    I know you want to sell your business as a package, but if you don't get the offers you seek and get to a point where you might consider selling the lawn accounts and/or equipment seperately, let me know. I have about 15 accounts in Lexington and am thinking about expanding. I might be interested in discussing taking over your Lexington properties. Richmond would be a little far for me to drive..as I have a few accounts in Georgetown and Frankfort already. Anyway, IF you reach the point that you might "part-out" the business, let me know. Good luck to you in the meantime.
