    My parents took out a 200K loan. I'm paying them back.

    The crews aren't all mowing crews.

    One maintenance crew that cuts crass and trims shrubs and weeds, etc.

    One full time mulch crew, that, well, mulches.

    One full time install crew that does plantings, walls, patios, etc.

    So you pay 3 crews to work on 4 accounts? And how again are you planning on paying your parents back for the equipment that you can't even use, I see 8 mowers, 5 cars, 4 trailers, and "4 weekly mowing accounts and growing"

    I'm hoping that this is a joke.
