    Yes, I know you have all heard me raving about going back to the solo operation. But I have decided that I am going to hire on someone to do strictly landscaping maintenance and small installation.

    Just thought that I would update everyone on the situation.

    Nothing wrong with changing your mind and good luck on the new employee if you decide to hire someone.

    I think that what made up my mind was today when my buddy went and helped me on a lawn doing the trimming. It felt good to have somone extra. So I am going to take it slowly and have them mostly doing landscaping work 90%, and maybe 10% of lawn maintenance by helping me on my busy days. I want to train the person big time before I put him on the mower. Because like the previous years, I wasn't happy with the quality of mowing work from my employees
