    Little info about our company. We offer lawncare service and landscape maint. as well as my favorite design and build services. I like doing landscaping basics and plants and lawn mowing. We try to do what we are good at and do alot of it. We do very little hardscapes, because I feel as I'm not the best at hardscapes right now. We offer:
    Lawn mowing, spring and fall cleanups, landscape design and install, have a landscape designer that does auto cad designs that helps me out with new install's. shrub trimming and weed control, new lawn planting, skid steer work, tree planting, snow removal, fire wood and other basic landscaping work. I currently have 3 full time guys and 1 part time guy that works 2 days a week. I work with my guys everyday a week with them and Myself and my landscape designer switch up on doing estimates and meeting customer. We currently cut about 75 lawns a week taking 3-4 days a week and we currently try to do landscape projects every day. I have a good friend in the weed and feed buisness that I give any weed and feed jobs to do, I don't get into that side of the buisness. I enjoy this buisness very much with alot of passion and try to treat my customers as well as I can.

    I've been wanting to get landscape bins for mulch, stone products for quite sometime now. The mark up on mulch products when you buy them in wholesale is very profitable. I'm trying and or working for a goal to have my own landscape center for my own companies use some day. The biggest factor I need to make it happen is a large dump truck. My dump inserts just don't haul enough to make it effiecient enough right now. We spend alot of money yearly on mulch, topsoil, and decorative stone that I know I could make a fair amount of profit purchasing in bulk. My goal would be to have bins for premium bark mulch, topsoil, mushroom soil, dyed black and brown mulch. 2b and 2a schale, river rock 2 sizes, and red stone, limestone dust and maybe sand. But for now I'm slowing trying to get bins made on my property so when I get that big truck I'm ready to go. Here's some pics to some bins I made.

    Here's a bin I made out of rail road ties as post. Slapped some untreated pine boards on them and thats it. Pretty ghetto. I'm going to add more but next time I'll use jersey barriers
    The bin beside it is used for topsoil.
