    Hello everyone first off let me introduce myself my name is Tim. I am going to share with you the story of how i got started. It all started in the year 2000. I picked up three houses all in a row the next town over from me. Once i week i would get a ride over there, use their equipment and mow the lawns it took me about 2 hours. I would also do one of my nieghboors lawn. So after four years of saving i went out and bought a 2004 36 inch encore mower and a tanaka backpack blower. A few weeks later i purchase a F250 with a plow. During the 2005 winter season i picked up 5 residentual drive ways. Over the winter i saved enough to buy a new enclosed trailer and two new trimmers ( we have 26 plowable events last year where i live this year we have only about about 4 :cry: ) So in the spring of 2005 i place an ad in the paper. It was enought to keep me busy and i picked up 10 new residentual lawns. In the spring i also started to work at a public golf course. I worked around 48 hrs a week just here!!! During the summer bussiness grew and i picked up about one new lawn account per week. By the end of the mowing reason i had 25 cumstomers on my route. The end of august i decided to buy a walker. My nieghboor that i grew up with also owns a lawn care business and has had a walker for about 5 years so i knew the machine and how to operate it. I also bought it to save time and labor while doing fall clean ups. In September i came across a deal on an ez dump for my truck and added that to my arsenal. This fall i did 32 fall clean-ups and made enought money to upgrade to a bigger trailer, i was going to sell my enclosed one and buy an bigger enclosed one and a open one however i decided to keep the other enclosed as storage and a trailer for my part time employee who can tow it. So about two weeks ago i ordered my new trailer and expect it to arrive mid February. I also came arcross another good deal on a lesco leaf sucker that mounts to my truck. When the 06 mowing season comes around i will be turning 18 and finishing my JR. year in highschool. I am expecting in the area of 45 lawns for the year. I do not plan on buying anything as i am well Equipped to handle 100+ lawns. So that ladies and gentlemen has been my story and hoped you all enjoyed it. See you around the site. :waving:

    Hey Mystic i know this thread is very old, but i came across your name in another thread and it sounded familiar. I checked where you were from and i noticed Peabody, as i am based out of Topsfield. I was just wondering if you were in any relation to the Mystic Paving company in Middleton. Let me know.
