    Just a quick "brag"....which I really don't do often.

    One of our properties was featured on MTV's Cribs. It was one of the homes owned by Roy Jones Jr (PRO Boxer). They didn't really focus on the lawn, BUT never-the-less, it was on tv.

    I'd post o pic, but now the lawn is dormant. They must have recorded the show in the summer.

    Anybody work for celebs?

    Haven't worked for any celebs but one of my props was featured on the HGTV show Extreme Homes this summer. A real wild house the owner is a big wig architec(sp?) in New Orleans. They barely showed the lawn and landscape though.:( Still was pretty cool ! I could swear I remember someone saying they used to have OZZY as a customer.. not sure?

    I was flipping through National Geographic a few years ago and saw that one of my lawns was featured in an article. It was about the watershed and the effect of fertilizers leaching into streams. The account had a stream running through it but the lawn had never been fertilized when I was maintaining it. Kind of ironic.

    We do an apartment house that former Pers. Gerald Ford's mom leaved at and the lawn of a astronaut that flew two missions, but thats as close to stardome as I can get.
    By the way, If Mike Tyson is looking for lawn care, I would be interested, He has paid more for lawn care than he did in child support.:)

    I have done various basketball & football big shots. You never see them or deal with them you always land up talking to their maids or wives...I did a estimate for a Nascar racer.
