    I am looking for an assistant/partner for my lawn maintenance and landscaping business. I am looking for someone under 16 (I am 14), who has at least some experience running commercial equipment, or has their own. I am in the Allendale, NJ area, which is about 20 minutes from Hillsdale, NJ, and about 5 minutes from Mahwah, NJ. So far I am holding my own, but it would be nice to have someone help me out with my lawns and landscaping. If anyone is interested, put up a post, and I'll contact you.

    Thanks, Matt K Work and Landscaping :waving:

    Either my parent's Chevrolet 2500 Suburban, my grandpa's Chevrolet 2500 Silverado, or my parent's Jeep Wrangler. Either my parent's or my grandfather drives me to my jobs.

    mkwl, I admire your industriousness, your drive, and most of all your creativity! Be not swayed; drive on !

    You will soon be in a position to hire (or NOT ! ) some of those who give you a hard time today.
