    Just for fun I was looking at businesses for sale in Australia. I looked up landscaping businesses for sale in Queensland and I couldn't find any.

    Are they called something different down under?

    Wow something I can help with! I have been on this site for months checking out how you guys run your businesses, We call ourselves "lawn mowing contractors" , most guys start lawnmowing only and then IF they can run a business expand slowly into "landscaping". Any way if you want to look up business names in Aus look up the Yellow Pages on line and type in "Lawn cutting & Maintenance"
    Hope this helps peter h

    Thanks Peter!

    I visited Brisbane several months ago and it was beautiful. Queensland is full of very friendly people.

    It got me thinking that if I have to run a company... why not run it in Australia? :)
