For all the young guys just starting out here's a brief list of what you will have to contend with in the years to come. 1) A total ban on Pesticides likely by 2007 2) Increasing bans on Blowers in urban areas 3) Increasing Enviro-Nut restrictions on gas powered equipment. 4) No or Slow Growth Turf Grass. 5) The depletion of the world's oil reserves. Skyrocketing fuel prices. Thankfully I will be entering full retirement by /07 and will enjoy the financial benefits reaped from years of burning gasoline like air and spreading chemicals like water. I suggest the younger crowd return to their job @ McDonald's or go back to school to prepare for future careers focusing on non maintenance services.
