    Welcome to the site Billy.

    I found a site one day that sells franchises and if you have 100K then check in to this.


    There's a couple of people around here driving around in US Lawn trucks. They are a subsidiary of ValleyCrest Companies, Inc.

    If not this then you can probably find an online site for N and S Carolina that has business opportunities and now is a great time to buy a lawn care company.

  5. Hi To All Who Took The Time To Come In And Leave Me A Message. As I Said I Am A Qualified Scottish Greenkeeper Who Aside From Dealing With Grass Problems Can Build Decking - I Am Not Looking For A Franchise As I Would Prefer To Buy A Business Outright But Am Specifically Looking At The Carolinas Or Altanta As I Have Family There And Want To Make That My Starting Point On Reaching The States. If Any Of You Know Of Anything You Think Could Be Suitable, I Would Love To Hear From You. My Investment Could Be Up To $100,000 For The Right Business. All Replies Greatly Appreciated.

    Billybob, where in Scotland are you? I used to travel the UK quite frequently for work and play.

  7. Hi Tony,
    We Live In Greenock Just 20 Miles From Glasgow. Beautiful Scenery But Rubbish Weather.
