    Hey everybody, my name is Mike and I just got my Lawn Maintenance/Landscaping business going here in Colorado Springs. I started in the business in 1998 in North Carolina where I owned a similar business that was fairly successful until September 11th when I got all patriotic and joined the Army. I have served seven years with the United States Army Special Forces and have just finished up and started landscaping again. For now I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab, a Blue Bird Aerator, a commercial series Troy Bilt 21" mower, Husky Trimmer, Backpack Blower, Chainsaw and tree pruner and about a million hand tools. I haven't signed any year round contracts yet but I'm optimistic! I have been busy as heck with aerating this week......it's my first week taking on customers. If you guys have any advice/lessons learned for an eager entrepreneur looking to grow feel free to send them my way, I would certainly appreciate it.

    Nice to meet you all, Mike.:usflag:
