    Ya its a nice 16'ft trailer with i believe 2' 6" sides.

    Im doing alright, not busy by any means but just working slowly at it. Its just a job on every tuesday to make a couple more bucks then i was, also i landed a few yard clean up jobs already. I also have got people asking me if i will do fall clean ups and of course i said yes.

    I think it will pick up next year and the year after. Im basically just doing it to earn some extra cash and i personally enjoy the finish product and the result of the clients faces.

    Oh and going door to door handing out flyers hasnt worked for me, i have got most of my clients through craigslist and word of mouth.
