    Well I must say it has been very interesting so far. My plans have changed . I had a few very high end lawns, for around here and now I have went all in.

    I ran a simple newspaper add for a month and have currently more work then the weather is allowing for. I have added a man and a walk behind to offset for the extra grass being serviced.
    I will add equipment and work pictures as I find time , be on the weekends

    This year the rain will not let up. We have been running a 3 day week all year, but it has been great. I have been looking at a couple of new items for next year and I am honestly excited . I have met great people , broke a lot of equipment made a lot of money but feel I have a spent even more.

    This was a harder transition then I ever imagined.
    The customers I had, I got rid of exception of a few so I built back up smarter. Currently I have 50 customers for lawn care and about all of them are fall leaf customers. In August I will start building my leaf set up. It really never stoped or slowed down for me this year so I hope I get the set up finished in time on my budget . My plans are to build a 8' tall box 14' long and 7'4 ''wide on 16' trailer coupled with a gravely 20 horse power debris loader .
