    Ya know kid you are going to give some "professional" companies a serious run for their money on the finished look of your properties.
    The lines are straight, the edging looks _____ hot and I'm sure your clients are happy with the work.

    Long as you keep up that kind of work, charge a fair price (don't low ball just because you are young) and get some liability insurance sooner or later you should be in this for the long haul.

    I have to give you a lot of kudos for the fact that you are out and getting it done while 99.9% of the other punks your age are sitting their fat axxes on the couch doing drugs, playing PS3 and getting their girl friends pregnant.

    Keep it up man. Your parents have got to be proud of ya.

    In the 90s when I got my start I was the definition of weekend hack. $500 worth of wal mart equipment working out of a car trunk for 2 weeks. I had bought a pickup but it was delayed in the delivery and I had customers needing mowed from my newspaper listing. But I tried my best to provide the best work I could and soon moved beyond the hack equipment look.

    Today I play with the biggest dogs in town.

    The rest looks fine...I don't know if I'd wear white, but if Mom doesn't mind, lol (I'm assuming she does the laundry).

    A golf/polo or other collared shirt goes a long way in providing a professional look in my opinion. I don't have mine lettered but I bought a whole bunch of matching ones on the bargain rack at the J. Crew outlet store for $5 each. I wear jeans for landscaping work when it's not too hot and Dockers/Dickies for mowing until it's too hot to do so..then it's Dockers cargo shorts.
