    Just started reading this lawnsite.Lots of interesting posts about cutomers, lawn equiptment,what should I charge,do I cut on Sat and Sun.,how do I get new customers,what should I charge...all legit questions....how to grow your business seems to be a major topic in round about questions.My thoughts are( kick me into cyper space if you want) Always do a good job,cut,trim and blow everything,do the job the same day of the week,keep a schedule,put your company name on the truck with the phone number,don't have anyone one just standing around the truck smoking a cigarrete not doing anything or smoking while mowing etc. Keep the Mega Death t shirts at home,get a light colored t-shirt with the company name,logo,what ever on it. Uniforms are fine for the big boys but don't over do it,we are just smaller company's...I'm guessing. If a customer has a question make sure he goes to the one in charge.Bill once a month,saves time and money. Could go on but this is my first offical post...thanks for listening...............

    Well you will learn something here. I did. You probably also will teach somebody else something.

    Well I see your a train buff. I collect S gauge trains. 1946 to 1960 model year American flyer. My collection between my father and I is over $25,000. (Most of thats is his, like $22,000 of it) I am over in Mt. Airy, MD. The B&O used to run right through here. When its not spring, and its slowed down a little. You can find me at the Mt. Airy train depot (train shop) on every saturday.
