I just started my lawn and yard care business about 6 months ago.I live in a mountain resort community in the sierra mountains where most of the homes are vacation rentals. Business has been great and increasing strong all season. The main thing that has slowed me down is the spring and fall clean-ups and I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on the best machine or combinations of machines to get the pine needles out of the lawn and flower beds? The spring time is the hardest. They weave themselves into the lawns and get all matted down in clumps after sitting under the snow all winter.As I stand there raking and bagging for hours I think to myself, "theirs got to be a faster way"!
