As a kid growing up I wanted to be (A) baseball player or (B) a ************* for a mlb team. That was just a dream of course.

I used to work for a lawn care company when I was in my late teens,
I used an aerator, derby, seeded, fertilized and applied chemicals with a hand sprayer as well as with a tank.
I mowed lawns and worked for a tree service splitting logs. This was 20 yrs ago, now that I am in my early 40's I want to get
back into the business on a p/t basis.

This forum is a great place to get started, but living in the northeast(Queens,NY) this is seasonal,8-9 months out the year,
not interested in snow removal, we hardly had any snow last winter, a record low as a matter of fact.

DONT let that deter you. I had my highest profits last winter because of the lack of snow. Now I expect some of my seasonals to switch to per push/event this winter but that might work out with New England weather.
