Just wanted to put my two cents down. Very thankful for the helpful information that is provided here. For somebody that is completely new to this business, I think it's very refreshing to be able to find information that is helpful to someone starting out. In this day and age it is very rare to find a community of people willing to share their knowledge and secrets of their business with outsiders. In this day of competition, everybody out for the next guy's dollar, it's so refreshing to be able to ask questions and get honest answers. I feel that I, as well as others new to this game that a succesful business is possible. I also feel that the questions others have answered for me will help me be succesful. Just wanted to thank the moderator and all you lawn care professionals out there for freely giving us newbies like myself your time. So far it has probably saved me thousands in mistakes. For I believe in any venture, information is the most important resource. The lawncare business is new to me, although self-employment is not. I was a fourth generation farmer who recently displaced is very excited to be soon working for myself again in a new field not quite unlike farming. Thanks for providing us with this valuable service!
