    Aloha,

    Well here i go. I have been out of the lawn care business for approx. 9 years. Im going to try and start a lawn business again. A little history i had worked for a few different lawn and landscape business when I was younger for about five years. Then I started my own business which lasted for about 5 years. Starting from scratch again, in this economy hopefully will not be to tough. Seems like a lot has changed in my time away from the business, but the basics remain the same. Any helpful thoughts and tips would be greatly appreciated. This website is great and I've been doing a lot of research, thanks to all of you posting. Looking forward to interacting with you all more.

    Mahalo,
    Ben

    That's funny, I didn't realize you were from Toms River...I grew up in Bick and Toms River. Now I live one town over from Toms River. Small world.
