I was approached today by the local small nursery guy here in my town. He is third generation that had this and they have been floaten the past couple years. The place in old, outdate, equiopment is worn - two NH TC33 D - about 5000 hours a piece - old dump truck they bought from me a few years ago which is why I sold it cuzz it was old, cehvy 1/2 ton with about 200K, ford 3/4 diesel with 180K two trailers which look awful, some nursery stock, fertilizzer, etc. Now my story is - full service lanwcare/landscaping. I get all my material at wholeseller, plants, bushes, block, etc. Run 5 exmarks, 6 wb, and a 3 WAMS. Mowing 1000K yard to 40 acre complexes. Alot of spraying, etc. He wants out - he gave his residential snow list to do but he is keeping his commercial - said he needed something to do for the winter. His office is nothing more than a sloped roof 24x18 plywood shack. His green house is about shot, his shop is a 24 x 32 garage that they moved in which the garage door no longer works. There name and reputation has kept him there and in this state. They always did good work but never ventured out of the box on landscapes. Is it worth the buyout ( being you dont know terms) or better to say this is it, purchase land, build new, invest in myself, family, business and town and start a small scale nursery? But with that said where do you draw the line? Nursry stock, or nik-naks, or floral shop ( which only one in town) Everything else I feel were doing already.
