    Hey everyone. I know I haven't been active on here lately anymore, not as much as I was a couple years ago. But I sold the lawn maintenance business this fall so I can go to college on the other side of the state. My dad is still running the installation side of the business but he just didn't want the hassle of the maintenance business. Just wanted to say thanks to all those that helped me out in the past, although I don't recognize alot of the folks on here these days. God bless and take care.

    Good luck with your plans. Sometimes it's just time to move on and no doubt your experiences will serve you well in times to come.

    Congrats on the sale and good luck with college. It was without a doubt the most fun I have ever had. I wish I could go back. What are you planning on majoring in?

    Wow I'm getting old. I remember way back when you were a motivated wide eyed "young businessman" just starting out. Going to college is a great move and I am sure that you will have success in your life. Take care, have fun and study hard because real life is only a few short years away.

    So basically, you're not getting out of the business, you're just moving up! All you are doing is emphasizing on the area that makes the REAL money! Good for you! Perhaps after school. you'll pick up dad's work. Good luck with it, and stay with us!

    Scag 48, what are you majoring in? I think you are making a wise move with school. It will help in a lot of ways.

    There is more and more larger businesses removing lawn maintenance and just staying with landscape and hardscape...Lawn maintenance is just not profitable..

    Even when it is, it is STILL the least lucrative out of ALL the operations in the green industry. The only advantage is, is that it's so regular. It is a constant flow of capitol coming in.
