    Hearing your story again makes me smile. Nice work man!

    Does the white gate slam with that antique latch/closer system?

    Thats great to hear. Well I'm 18 years old, senior in high school. Only do lawn maintenance and plowing, all light stuff, no construction. I have been doing this since freshman year and plan to go to college next year to study business.

    My setup

    I assume you want to stay in the industry. I would recommend minoring in either business or landscape so that you can get a good grasp on both.

    I think the best business men/women are those without the education.

    You seem to have it it together tthomass. Good on yah.

    And Alarsh, education in college is time away from business. You seem to have it together also. Evening classes and/or a landscaping/business class at the community college are all you need, no need for a degree if this is where your heart is.

    Just my 2 cents. I'm a highschool dropout, and a Vet. Been in this industry since my mom married my stepdad, and he's been very supportive. Family also full of small business owners.
