    I been using lawnsite.com for years for all sorts of random knowledge and research, but I have yet to have started a thread.

    Leland Lawn was started in 2003 with the help of my dad. I had been working for a guy mowing about 10 lawns on the weekends for a year when he gave me the opportunity to buy his business since he needed to have hip replacement surgery. At first it was just a something we did on the weekends, but when my dad quit his full time job as an accountant in '05 and started to pursue more clients we grew into a full service landscape company. I had been working summers and weekends, until I got my degree in welding technology and started full time as a crew manager. I now manage all mowing and double as our small engines mechanic.

    Our shop for 2011. We had to get out of a garage and into a larger space, so we rented while we looked for something to buy.

    It's 6.5' x 18'.

    I carried equipment for 5 guys on a regular basis, but this year we are running two crews. Got another truck and trailer. I'll post pics of those soon!

    We finally found our own space to own and settle into in the spring of last year!! ('12) It's crazy that we have filled into the space so quickly. I'm sure that we will need to expand into another of the buildings on the property in the next 5 years.

    The bobcat belongs to the renters of our other shop, behind the building we are in. I was just borrowing it to do some gravel work out front.
