    Your a champ man! Do you guys mosty mow, or do you do landscaping? Seems like most pics are all mowing.

    We do alot of mulch, new lawn installs, Plantings etc etc, I just dont take alot of pics of it. 95% of my business is mowing/Maintenance. We fill 5-6 days a week with just mowing so at this juncture i dont have much time for anything else. Next year im looking to add another crew to help with the mowing and help do the odd jobs that we currently have trouble doing because of time. Im not interested in doing any type of hardscaping at this time such as patios/walls/Walkways. I do however want to get into fert.

    I do not recall if you answered this question already or not (if so, sorry!), but do you double-cut a lot of stuff? If so, is it at the customer's request or do you just do it for your own personal satisfaction? Either way, I think striping that way adds a nice touch to a lot of those accounts with the hills especially. A local dealer just started carrying eXmarks and I looked at those Lazers when they first got them in and they really seem like a great mower. Everything looks really good! Oh and btw, how did that Chevy work out for you over the winter? are you using it for landscaping at all?

    I double cut every lawn, not so much for the homeowner mostly for me. Im wicked anal and cant leave a yard looking just Ok, because of that i have never received a complaint from a homeowner saying we did a bad job.

    And the chevy was a great truck this winter, didnt have any problems with it and it plowed great.
