    well ive been on this site for awhile now and never introduced my self.

    Little History on me. im Jacob aka KrayzKajun. I started cutting lawn when i was 12. used to drag a wagon around with my edger and trimmer, while pushing my 21" mower(still have tht old murray). by the time i was 18, i had 40 customers. i gave away all my customers when i got deployed in Jan 2004.

    I started One Krayzee Kajun Enterprises LLC in October of 2005 one month after returning home from an 18month deployment to Iraq. (also one month after Hurricane Katrina demolished the are I live)

    I started doin debris removal and gutting houses. Finally went to college for Horticulture. (im 3 semesters away from a degree in Hort) Will soon have my Landscape contractors liscense, and pesticied app.
    I curently service about 25weekly residential and 10 commercial accounts. (numbers vary due to me being a sub contractor for a few Homebuilders and real Estate companies)

    At this time im trying to step into the dirt work field and hardscapes. I have met some really great people on this site. Especially my local Louisiana people(Chase, David, Kris,....)

    And im tired of typing now. LOL
