    This will be my final season in the landscape game. It's have bee a fast 5 years and I owe many of the good decisions I've made on many of you guys who have offered me needed advice.

    I just singed paperwork and sold out to a new U.S. Lawns franchisee.

    It took me 5 years to come to the realization that this is too hard of a job to do it only for the money. I lost the love after my second year and have been on cruise control for the last three.

    Again, I want to thank everyone who has answered my questions -- and I hope when it comes time to move on or retire you run in to an eagar U.S. Lawns franchiesee! Show me the money!!!!!!

    I'm curious on this one also .... we finally got one here in Brevard ... n everyone down here cut's grass .... or the really big jobs are locked by some big outfitters (Patrick AFB is 2 mill yearly)

    I've seen the our local guys work .... n I just don't see it .... any insight to what the guy up your way paid to get in or what he is doing to "gain work"

    This sounds like a great deal. I would really like to hear some of the details on what this deal really covers.
