    I've got a great contract. My attorney originally drew it up for me years ago. So it covers just about everything you could think of. I'm glad to share it with you. Just IM me with your email address and I'll send you a copy.

    Of course, every state is different. In my state there are like 9 very specific requirements that HAVE to be in the contract for it to be legal. The state Landscape Contractors Board dictates what these requirements are. So check your local state board for more details. But I am happy to share the one that I use with whoever (unless you're from my area...haha....then you can go get your own!!!) :laugh:
