    I remember there were many new members from LI last year.

    Who is still around?

    How did things go last year?

    What do you have planned for this year?

    Fourth year and best start yet. Though still short of a full schedule.

    Work in Eastern half of Huntington Township, Smithtown Township, and a touch of the Northern part of Islip Township.

    Where do you work?

    How far west, east, north, and south have you worked from Yaphank?

    There are people here that will not travel that far. I look at travel as worth it when all one would be doing is sitting home waiting for work.

    You solo, family business, what?

    Actually my furthest west customers are manhasset and long beach I don't take any new ones from Nassau tho. Furthest east is the forks both of em . I should say I don't cut grass any more so those long trips are for the whole day at least. I started the business in 2004 Been pretty good could always be better . How about yourself what's your service area what kinda service do u offer?
