    Im getting off this mower the year. I need to do it. Almost 20 years of this is starting to wear on me. I need to grow also and being solo really inhibts that.

    For now Im going to hire one guy on PT. It will probably be between 30-35 hours a week.

    Work for now will be trimming and blowing and helping on landscaping jobs.

    Eventually, if not known, I will teach how to mow.

    In a few months Id like to be able to send him out on his own and hire another guy to help him.

    Hopefully in the fall I will be back at school finishing up my hort degree.

    My reason is because I want to concentrate on growing and doing my applications while they mow and do the landscaping.

    I was thinking about $8.00 to start off with and bumping him up to $10.00 when he starts on his own.

    I know it sounds low to start off with but all he will be doing is running a trimmer and a blower.
