    Well I've been around here for awhile and i finally got some time to post some pictures of my work and equipment.

    I started the company in 2009 right before my 20th birthday. I've been doing this 'part-time' ever since.

    No real order or time-line here just what i currently have on this computer.

    overcast skies made this yard look cool

    this dirt was infested with snakes and spiders. I'm terrified of spiders and hate when snakes sneak up on me. This on actually bit my jeans/boots while i was out of the skid trying to find a tile. He lost his head.

    Hustler fast track super duty 60"

    My friends like to make fun of it cause its a 'home owner' mower. But after testing them all i chose that one because of the super low center of gravity. I mow some ridiculously steep hills and i need something that will stick and not tip. Plus it had the same warranty and was almost $1500 cheaper than an x-one.

    I've sold off all other mowers, which were 36" wb including the bob cat in the pics.

    thanks for the compliments. I'm hoping i can have alot more to add come spring. I spent a lot of money on advertising this year instead of upgrading/adding equipment. Hopefully it pays off.

    Your 7.3 is sharp!!! Very clean!

    The wall & stairs look great also. Stairs are a pain the a$$ to build!

    Are the skid & dingo yours or rentals?

    I like seeing other young guys on here building businesses.
