I would like to say thanks for the valuable info gained here. I am in my second full year of lawn care partime. I currently have 3 partime yards (they call when they need me), and 6 lawns I take care off, 4 of which signed year contracts this weekend. I have been working in a factory for ten years, but plan to leave by March 09 to pursue lawn care full time. I am well on my way with hard work and the knowledge I have gained here. Thanks again.
