I started my business while in college picking up small installation jobs from the nursery that i worked at (they do not do installs). I started with a pick, shovel, rake and wheel barrow. And was amazed at how much i could do and make with just that and a borrowed tiller. That grew until the nursery job became too much and I was just going to school and landscaping. While other kids were buying new cars and expensive toys. I bought a new holland 33 hp tractor. Business got slow. I went to work for another company for 2 years as installation manager and learned alot. Wife got pregnate so I quit my full time job dizzy moved back to her home town and started full time with business. Today we are still small just one F250, couple of trailers, NH LS180 skid steer,several attachments, bunch of hand tools. Sorry for the lengthy post. I haven't thought about where i have come from lately.
