    Hi im andrew and own and operate A&A landscaping. i am 17 years old and have been cuttin grass since 8. i started cutting for money when i was 10. i would push my push mower to the yards and my antique stihl weed eater. i then moved from that neighborhood around 11. when i got to my new neighborhood my dad purchased some new stuff he got a homelite weed eater and blower and a scotts 46'' and a honda harmony 21'' mower(its sweet still!!). i cut 2 yards regularly and a couple every now and then. ever since then i have been growin a lil more every year. this years i have gone out for more accounts. i purchase all echo stuff blower weed eater edger. and use my dads trailer. my g/f's dad dad gave me a 48'' exmark wb, i wouldnt take it for free so i gave him a 100 dollars. he does not know how much that mower has helped me! i now have 9 accounts and am tryin to grow more! i do other stuff such as mulch jobs, roofs and pretty much anything! i lost my license for 6 months so this season has been hard and stressful tryin to get my yards cut! but i get it back july 1st!!!!!!!! when i go to mow its not work its pride! i take pride in my work and believe in quality! i love to mow and plan on continuing!

    i hope you weren't speeding with the trailer. there was a small accident today when a truck and trailer coillded with a sedan and sent a tied down 21" mower into the air and a trimmer through the window of the nearest house.
