    Just saw your post. I have been working with them since September. They seem to be good to work with. I just answered an ad on Craigslist and they got back to me about a week later and started with 3 properties in my town and then it got bigger and ended up doing about 2 dozen every couple of weeks in town and out of town. It is part time for me and the money seems to be in the out of town properties since they pay mileage, and the really far properties they pay for gas and mileage. I am happy working with them.

    They are NOT looking for professional lawn companies. They are looking for hacks with a pushmower in the trunk of a geo metro...............

    MH Landscaping has a contract to landscape the property adjacent to mine. The building and land at 2345 Greystone, Round Lake Beach, Illinois, are owned by BankAmerica (or Bank of America), not sure of the precise name of the bank. The property's yard and patio area have become an unsightly mess with weeds as high as my waist. The weeds from the property have grown and/or been blown under our side of the common fence. I have seen a MH Landscaping crew mow through the middle of the back yard and leave a wide uncut swath along both the fence and the patio. I took photos on June 23 and July 16 to document the issue, but have had trouble uploading them. Will try to post photos tomorrow.
