    Hello, I am Josh and I own WIsconsin Lawn Care Company LLC. Thanks for adding me. I will be going into my 4th year since starting the business and I love every bit of it, I just wish I could mow all year long.

    After spending almost 20 years in an office or cubicle of some sort I've come to love it too, I'm definitely a happier person now!

    Yeah, I'm a novice, (4 months under another guy (Landmark Services, LLC) in 2016 and in my fourth month on my own) but I love the physical work and the look of a well cared for yard. I'm a lone operator right now, but I loved working with the crew back in 2016. Whether it was a Bojangles' parking lot or someone's backyard at Lake Murray, we knew each others work patterns and could jump out of the truck and get into the flow of it just like that.

    The one thing I don't like is the paperwork, and that's relatively minimal for me right now. :eek: As soon as I can, I'll be hiring someone to handle that for me.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Last season was a nightmare in many areas of the country. HOT , humid and wet every month except September. From 9 am on. Cooled down in September and then the grass died:cry: So not very enjoyable

    How many people here own, used, or have used a Walker? https://www.walker.com/ https://www.walker.com/models/2018-commemorative/ My old boss had 3 (2 Bees and a bagger. Don't remember the exact model, all were 42"." and a John Deere Z-Track (52"). I'll never be content with anything but a Walker again. (Currently, all I have is a Troy-Bilt tractor style.) I'd love to find out who's a Walker fan on this forum.
