Hi everyone, name is Garrett, 21 years old, have enjoyed and been doing residential landscaping and construction since I was 16. The past 2 years I have been doing mostly interior remodeling which I dread everyday, so now I am ready to get back into full time landscaping and wish to start my own company. Lucky for me I have some money in the family which has paid for about half of my new 2011 Silverado 1500 as well as a new 16' car hauler trailer(for my project racecar) both of which are paid off. The trailer has an open center, but I plan to remodel it with full wood deck and wood sides to slide into the stake pockets as well as some kind of solid ramp on the back that is good for loading equipment and the car as well. So far the name I have picked will be LamdinScapes, but that could still change. I plan to do residential properties for now, including lawn maintenance, irrigation service, landscaping, snow removal, holiday lights, decks, fences, retaining walls, basically anything I feel comfortable doing. Plan is to pull some money out of a personal trust fund to buy a mower like the Honda HRX217HYA, a Stihl 110 trimmer, Mclane edger, Stihl blower, Ryan aerator, and of course a spreader, sprayer and all the hand tools one needs to do this line of work. When fall rolls around I should be able to invest in a good gas powered compressor to do the blowouts. I know I am forgetting things here, but suggestions and comments are more than welcome as I am a little nervous about making mistakes but very excited at the same time. Heres a pic of my truck and trailer. The last pic is next to a fence I recently built for my dad, I will be doing the landscaping there once all the snow is gone as well.
