About the company. Well it's me (18 years old) and my brother (20 years old). We are both obtaining degrees in horticulture, so we might be considered part-timers for now. Business was officially established in March 2003. Like a lot of guys, we started cutting at a young age, before either of us could drive. Slowly obtained more and more equipment (and QUICKLY learned that buying commercial equipment pays off). Started off with an '89 chevy halfton loading equipment in the back. Later bought a 4x8 to accomodate a lawn tractor. Finally stepped up to a 6x12 to fit all of the gear onto. Then bought the chevy truck. etc... As I said above, we are both in school so we don't take on a whole lot of work yet. Lawn maintenance contracts was about 35 this year, varying sized lawns. Snow removal accounts is around 15-20. We do tons of mulching in the spring. Did a few hardscaping jobs this year (a few retaining walls, a walkway...).
