    Man EagleLandscape. I am very impressed. I have read a few forums and its hard to believe you are only 24. I think I read that correct.

    So my question is you went to school in College Station so how did you grow your business so big in just a couple of years.

    When i was in College Station I didn't work on growing my business. Mostly we did like 30-50 yards in the summer, and I had a guy that just did them all in a week by himself. I guess I have had my company for 6 years, 4 while in school, and 2 while out of school.

    while I was in school we just mowed residential, and picked up some landscape projects here and there. Just little projects like $2,000 - $6,000. Do alot of those and they do pile up.

    When i graduated in 2007, i decided to get serious and go mostly commercial. Really just been blessed beyond belief. Have had the opportunity to meet some key decision making people that I have gotten to know and work closely with. Every commercial account we have, except for stuff with USM is word of mouth referral stuff.

    We're still pretty small from what I think. Everyone and their dog here owns a landscaping company pretty much.

    We do a handful of banks in Ft Worth/Keller. Maybe we'll run into each other one day,

    I need to find a good dealer for a box truck. Anyone buy recently?

    I have seen a couple of places off 35 and Mockingbird in Dallas but never saw a number or business name to call. (never there during business time)

    Looking for an Isuzu NPR. I see more of those than other brands.

    Thanks.

    How big are you looking for? There is a used car place up here in Gainesville that has two GMC 2006 diesels with what looks like to be a 14' boxes. They look to be in great shape while driving by.

    GOT TO LOVE CRAIGSLIST

    Here are two postings

    "I have 4-5 stumps to be grind down, they are 9"- 19" if interested let me know.
    These are all at one house in Coppell, willing to pay around $150. "

    and my favorite

    "I need someone to mow my backyard. The grass is now probably 2 feet in a few spots. My husbands laziness is your gain. I will pay $20. Please email or call "
