It all started when i was allitle kid i just always wanted to be outdoors and always wanted to play in the sand box with my construction toys or either help my father in the yard. From there i became in love with doing yard work and helping my father mow the lawn. I knew for sure that i wanted to become a Landscaper and would run my own buisness. When i was about 12 i started out with my dads husqvarna push mower and this old trimmer and a craftsman blower and mowed my next door neighboors lawn across the street. Eventualy my name had spread and i started to get more calls and became alot bigger with about 5 lawn accounts. So i decided to buy my first mower that i payed for with my own money wich was a craftman Lt3000 brand new for $1200. I mowed on a weekly base and started to buy more equiment and eventualy got to the point where i started to have about 15acounts. I also had lots of landscaping jobs lined up and couldnt do it all by my self so i hired my brother and my couzin. All the money i got from the landcaping jobs and mowing acounts i upgraded to new equiment and sold the craftman and bought a ferris 52 in and all new echo equiment trimmers edgers ect.and A Kubota and i bought cat skid steer from my uncle brand new. As of today i am 16 years old and curently run my buisness FIGUEIREDO LANDSCAPE CO. and work with my buddy full time. I also will be atending a landscaping school and plan on going to college to get a degree in landscape design.
