    Just figured I introduce myself. I started my own company a year ago after working part time for about ten years for a friends landscape business. I started the business after an injury forced me to leave my full time job. I have experience running a business and doing landscaping so I figured I'd go out on my own (nowhere near my friends business btw ). I probably got a late start (well in my 30's) but the circumstances were unforeseen. I went out bought the equipment I needed, got certified in pesticide application and I'm on my way. After a year the equipment is paid for and we have a couple of dozen full service accounts plus whatever one time projects that come our way.

    I just wanted to thank you guys for sharing your knowledge this site certainly has helped me a great deal. Thanks
