    Well i have been registered on here a few months back and was never really active. Well I am Nick and I am a 17 year old high school senior in North Carolina. I started lawn care my freshman year of high school for a way to pay for college. I started off with just a 21 in john Deere push mower and using my parents john Deere lx 280. Since then I have gained more customers each year I am currently sitting at 17-18 customers per week. I have been working every week since. In the years that I have been working I have never missed a customer mowing. I go to school during the day until 3.00 in the afternoon. I can usually complete 4-5 lawns after school. When I first turned 16 is when I started expanding out of my street. I started with an 03 Sport Trac and this past May I purchased my Uncles 97 F - 150 that has 347000 miles on it now I bought it with 339,000. I also purchased my trailer at the age of 16 it is a Leonard 17 ft with the 2 ft mesh sides. My mower is a Toro ZTR that I purchased this past spring and it makes things so much easier I have yetto buy a strip kit for it. I also did buy of the equipment you see in the photo with my own money. I plan to attend college next year, So I will be doing this next year until July with my current customers. Whell that's about all heres the pictures from work today (9-4-08)

    Very good work. You're a smart man. Get that education. Heck, I'm 57 and I think I'm going to enroll this fall in a local junior college to get some edumacation on agriculture landscaping.
