    But I'd say 10 years mowing, Landscaping and light construction for about 6 of that and Pavements and Heavy Construction for the last 4 or so, still dabbling in grounds maintenance of course.

    Started cutting my grandfathers lawn when I was 11 yrs old. Kept cutting thru the HS years so I didnt have to flip burgers and such.

    Was introduced to the Landscaping aspects of the biz back in 93, and have been applying chems since 94.

    At 31 I guess you could say that its in the blood. :D

    This is my 25th year.

    Started at 17 ... Landscape construction

    Started a maintenance division 2 years ago so I am very green on the mowing , etc, which is what brought me to this site.
