    I use a pair of Timerberlands that I have used for a year and a half, they were brown once but now they are totally green/black I have had to replace the laces several times, maybe I'll replace them next year.

    We were just talking about the landscape guys in the Landscape Lighting forum, and I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself. If any of you guys/gals live in the N. Florida area and have customers in need of landscape Lighting, please give us a call. We are happy to pay refferal fees so you can make some cool cash without having to do a thing! By the way, the average referral fee we currently pay to our current landscape contractors is around $300. Please give me a call if you are interested in making some extra $.

    I don't know if this has been said or not but If you or anybody on your crew chews or dips tell them to keep it on the down low out there. Customers don't want to see you spitting wads of juice all over their property.Also make it clear that Cigs should all be put out and disposed of properly...NO DRINKING OR SMOKING WEED ever on the job. Save that stuff for relaxing time. I've worked with some real shady crews in the past puffing joints at lunchtime and sneaking beers here and there and I couldn't stand it. After work well thats another story..:dizzy:

    Where do you guys fit all of this supplies? I'm running a F250 Long Bed with a tool box, and pulling a 16' trailer. I don't know how to squeeze everything on there.
