    Hey all,
    My name is Mike, I own Marin Lawn Care here in Northern California. I currently have a pooper scooper business ( marin pet waste removal ) and have been thinking about adding lawn care service for many months. I currently have about 70 clients that I clean yards for on a weekly basis, nice little income, but I can do better.

    Lookin forward to meeting some of you here.

    Best Regards,
    Mike

    I wish more people would contract services such as yours. By far my biggest problem is Dog Owners that won't clean-up.

    No-body wants to have to carry or load a dirty lawn mower, or work all day with that all over their clothes.

    Dog yard cleanups and non-compliance by residents in home owner associations are difficult to deal with.

    If I do an estimate at a dirty residential property, I will decline if it is gross and damaged.

    I respect what you do do.

    I wish more people used your services too. Inhaling aerosolized animal fecal matter is part of this job I could do without.

    Keep your mouth closed when you use the weed eater.

    I guess you don't breathe much. Fun fact for you guys. There is not a single drop of water on this planet that has not had fecal matter in it. Aren't you glad you have an immune system?
