    Am I the only one, or does your yard get no love? I have lived in my current house for 3 years, and I still haven't done almost any landscaping. I did however, test different Fertilizers, and spreaders. So about a 1000sq of the front is pretty burnt up...I keep telling my wife "this is the year we do all the landscaping''

    Yeah, before I started in this business I had one of the best lawns on the block. Now I hide the truck in the back yard untill I catch up on mowing and give time to my own lawn.

    When I moved into my house a few years ago it was by far the worst, but is now one of the better lawns. I've removed 19 trees from it, a pool, rotten deck, ivy pit, wood fence and approximately 40 bushes. I only have 6 more trees to go and then start on my new deck in the back.

    No man, i keep my lawn looking good. If you keep it looking great and stay friendly with the neighbors then you should pick up some great business in your neighborhood. I currently do my neighbor's yard and at my old house I actually had 5 lawns in a row right across the street from my house.

    I keep it cut and stripped really nice, I just have no landscaping. I really am motivated to get it in shape this year, and show case it. I live on a busy street!

    lol, my significant other told me she was going to hire a lawn guy the other day. I said go ahead. We bought a foreclosure that needs a ton of lawn work. I just dont feel like messing with it right now.
