    No pictures of equipment. I will only sell entire package unless an established landscape company only wants the accounts.

    The route takes about 45 hours to complete with 4 guys. You will probably need two crews, one crew for cutting, one crew for landscaping. Who knows where you could take this thing, I don't want to go bigger. Most customers have been with me for over 5 years some 9 years, my work is good and the people in developments respect my work/name. As far as the asking price, I do not know yet. I have to sit down with my accountant and some other people to discuss what they think the business is worth.

    I am just putting this out here now and I will contact any serious buyers in the off season. I plan on selling over the winter. I will stay on as an advisor/worker for a bit of time in the spring.

    I am owner operated so I am always in the field. You will need your own employees.
