You know you're a landscaper if...

    You know you're a landscaper if...
    - You slow down when passing another LCO's truck and trailer to see what equipment he (or she) has.
    - You spend most of your shopping time in an outdoor power equipment dealer.
    - You laugh at homeowners with their inadequate 21" mowers.
    - You look forward to admiring the stripes on the baseball fields when watching a game on TV.

    I saw these on a white board (like a chalkboard) at my local power equipment dealer, so I thought I'd share :cool: .

    Your on vacation in the carribean and you find a place in an alley, upstairs in a little room that charges 5.00 for fifteen minutes to go online. You pay your money and log onto Lawnsite.com

    I did the same thing a few months ago when I was in California. I kept using a friends laptop to check lawnsite whenever I got a chance.

    LMAO sellout, that was funny, I do the same thing. Or you notice how a little trimming, flowers and mulch would really spruce up the place.

    Ha Ha! I do that all the time! Even when I'm mowing a lawn, I'll say to myself "Dang, I'd put some nice flowers there, maybe a few scrubs, and some new mulch. This would be awesome looking." I never get around to telling the owner though. :rolleyes:

    Oh, I didn't notice that. I like the smaller threads though. :D
