    I have been cutting grass since i was 10 or 11. Finally decided that this is what i want to do this and step my game up. Got more on the landscaping side this year.Bought some new machines. They have all been bought by me and i currently do not owe anything on them.

    not bad, if i can make a suggestion on a few of your lawn stipe pics you can see alot of clumps, you might want to think about double cutting or bagging... otherwise looks great!

    Cool vid. Two questions tho. Can you get your llc at 13 and if it's all you who drives the truck?

    I told the customer about it. I come about every 17 days on this account its 5 acres with a pool and a ton of hills. I suggested for an extra 20 dollars i would bag the whole property but he is very picky and always says no. Always wants just the basic stuff done. Yet again this is his second house and he is never around.

    Btw, that exmark looks good and as mentioned above, double cut or blow out the clumps. If the customer didn't pay for that, fine, but you don't want future customers to see that and think that is your standard

    Idk what the going rate is there or your rate, but 20 bucks to bag five acres is crazy cheap, especially with a small bagged for the exmark

    My dad is gonna help me with the LLC and landscaping license. Were looking into it this winter. If i do get the LLC and landscaping license of course they wont allow it in my name but it will be in my dads name untill im 18. I will end up paying for it thow. My older brothers alternate because one is unemployed in college and the other is waiting to be shipped for the Army. Either drives the truck for me and the bigger kid you saw in the video is my employee/high school buddy and he is here when i need and extra guy for stuff. Im the little blonde one.

    I underbidded it in the early spring. Tell me what you think you would charge. 2 guys. 5 acres. 1 pool area. 20 minutes of trimming. 20 minutes of blowing and around 2 acres of bagging with the exmark. Where would you be?
