    Here is my latest project... We used t raise chickens and ducks, but we gave the chickens away, and let the ducks go. Now, the ducks just run around the yard and swim in the pond...

    Well, anywho, the red building had the chickens, and the open one had ducks. Well, i am gonna tear out the boxes (where eggs were laid) in side the red building, and store misc tools and what not in there, or get my moms gardening crap out of the garage, and but it in there...

    FYI- Me, my bro, and his buddies built the "shed"...

    I am also gonna finish down the duck pen, turn it into a garden (it has all kinds of compost in there). Plus, the ducks crap fertilizes the soil, so i will till it up with the rototiller i recently fixed.. You can see the Rototiller here... http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=282406


    I am considering making the garden raised, but then the good soil would be way down... Any ideas? Also will be Where the duck pen is now, till the end of that cement pad (basically twice the width of the shed, in pic 1
    ) ...

    Heres a new job, our mom is a realtor (she manages a office too) and she has been in the biz for like 15 years... Well, i talked to the relocation person at her company, and we will probably start doing their yard care...

    The good- More work, great pat.

    The bad- The properties sell eventualy, and we dont get paid until they sell...

    Well, she gave us our first job, last week... We work in the Toledo area, BUT this job was in BG (Bowling Green) thats an hour round trip...

    So, since we could get lots of jobs from her we decided to go out of our way for this one... It is a $25-30, but its 1 hour round trip... So do we charge $25-30, or charge $45, like she suggested? (Ans that makes up for travel time, and gas).

    I think $30, since its closing the first of September (its being sold) so we are only gonna cut it six times...

    So what do you think?

    Sorry, i couldnt find pics of the front, but its only like 50x 6...

    I dont think its worth your time if its a hour round trip but if you are getting more jobs out of the deal i guess it would be.

    Yea, its all the way in BG, it kinda sucks, but we will get more work for this... And with lawns like this they have a set amount of what they can spend on the lawn... And the lady (she is older) thinks my bro is cute... So i talked to her about it on the phone and i said like $25 or $35... She was like well... "$45sounds good..." And later my mom told me that the top $$$ is pre set, so ask her for any job how much she thinks, and she will give the highest number possible!!! SCORE :clapping:

    WHAT? What do you mean?
