i'll make my intro short. certified marine tech (yep thats a wrench slinger on boat motors -2 and 4 stroke) 15 years..fiddled with basic maintenance on lawns for years..quit turning a wrench and went to driving a lazer z, walking a turf tracer, edging, prunning, blowing, spraying weeds, etc. as a laborer for a large national landscape company who i really love to work for in june 2008, promoted to supervisor in july of 2008 ( through God's blessing and management thinking i had what it takes), still a supervisor (they even trust me with our biggest account!!) and still love getting up everyday to do my job and always will. should have done it years ago. do mostly apartment complexes and a huge, very beautiful retirement community. also do a few lawns on weekends for friends. have a small but relaible equipment entourage of my own consisting of a toro 36, redmax eb4300 blower, stihl trimmer, muryama edger ( it won't die!) .. looking to add some gear to the list since a lot of friends like me to do their yards ( hey, what are friends for?!>) and i have found it to be a useful too to barter with i prefer exmark, toro, stihl, and redmax. favorite piece of equipment-tie- lazer z/walk behind/gas shears..favorite thing to do: prunning. married with a wonderful wife, son and two dogs. also play music professionally part-time. hope to have own company some day soon. i particularly enjoy seeing the small detail that need to be done to a property and seeing the change they make..its all in the details and quality !
