i am now convinced, very convinced, you cannot do it alone if you want to make any real money. with all the calls i'm now getting(mostly referels) how on earth can i do the estimates, do the extras(mulch, trimming, etc) AND keep up with the lawns? you can't . so, you limit yourself, and turn the work away? i think not.just one or two good helpers can make you a fortune. one thing you pr!cks were right about, do nice work, be reliable, and you will have so much work you can't keep up. well, that's where i'm at right now. i searched high, and i searched low, but i finally found the perfect helper. i pay him very well, treat him with respect, and he gives me 110% every day. you can't do it alone !
