    Well I started out in landscaping with a small mowing operation. My friend and I started it and slowly built it up. Soon we were getting into landscaping, we then moved away from mowing and focused mainly on landscaping. My friend decided to go to college and get his enagneering dagree. So he sold off the company and I sarted to focuse on my college career. While I was in college I started looking at the blower business. While looking into it some doors opened and I begain pursuing it more. We got our truck and the rest is now history. That is the short version of it. My advice is find something you like to do and then put everything you have into that. If you work hard and do the best job that you can you can go extremly far. that is just my 2 cents

    I have landed 10 new accounts in the last 2 weeks. Haven't even had time to get on lawnsite. With gas prices the way they are, I have had great luck in getting lawns next to each other (word of mouth, referrals) It is great. Hope everyone else is having a successful season too.
