    it's just like everything else, some people like to talk about all the stuff they have and some don't. They DID work hard to get it, so let them brag a little now and then! =D If you get offended that easily, this site may be a big let down for you. lol Seriously though, if you have any questions feel free to send them my way and I will honestly do my best to help you out.

    Okay, good deal. What part of Maine are you from? If you want to start it this year, you should get in a hurry and get everything lined up. Are you thinking of doing it just for some extra money or a career? First thing I would recommend is Read and READ posts on here. Also, I would recommend buying Ken LaVoie's lawn care success book. He runs a landscape business in Waterville and has writting a good book of info that is specific to our region and state - well worth the $47!! It's near the bottom left hand column of his website http://www.lavoieslandscape.com/

    Good luck!

    Jason

    Okay boys, did my first mowing of this season yesterday and this week it's about to hit the fan - got LOTS of spring work left to do and mowing is kicking off in full schedule.....got mowers and everything ready to go - now if only my hired help was ready to start - guess I gotta tackle it by myself for 2 weeks. How's everyone's season shaping up so far?

    we did good in 3 days 20 clean ups done. one road their are 20 houses. i have 15 houses for mowing clean ups and plowing. yesterday i end up with the last 5 houses on the road for mowing clean ups and plowing. the company that was doing them went under. one guy come out and ask me how much to do the clean up and mowing? told the price he said do it. then he went to his neighbors houses then they all come out.
