    long story short...been working cutting grass and landscaping in NJ full time and on the side for 9 years now. I have worked for 1 of the larger landscape companys in my area for 4 years, then got a goverment fulltime job which allows me to have time after to landscape. for 2 years i had my own gig going and the past 2 ive been workin for antoher local small time guy...

    now, this year i wanna venture back into mowing and landscaping along with my buddy who is very business savoy.
    now for a few questions...

    any1 have any ideas for a catchy business name, usually i am full of idea but as of now im clueless...

    to start we will both be doing this on the side after our fulltime job, Do you think we should stick with just focusing on residentials or go after sum commercials as well?

    and with the residentintals what do you guys think is better....goin after large high dolllar accounts or goin for volume with the smaller yards where u can bang out a good number in short time??

    just sum questions ive been going over in my head

    any feedback would be awesome, and i really appreciate it
    thanks
    gary
