    My Names Tim and I started out just trying to make a few extra dollars on my time off. I live in Livingston, TX and I work 7days on and 7days off as a Helicopter Mechanic. After Hurricane Ike hit my neighbor hood got hit pretty good and I just started removing debris from neighbors yards and made alittle money at it. I like to keep my yard nice and one day I was trimming along my driveway and one of the neighbors I helped asked if I'd be interested in mowing his yard. After that it was like a domino affect word traveled and before I knew it I was mowing about 10 yards 8 now after the really bad drought we just had. So I bought a New Cub Cadet RZT 42" Mower and I already had Echo trimmers and blowers trailers and push mowers. Now I'm researching Soft ware, commercial mowers and advertising. My goal is to try and have roughly around 40 accounts by the end of the year, so I'll update my Info later on this year. I've only been mowing about 3 months so we'll see what happens.

    Thanks for reading
