Just wanted to take the time to say WOW what a great site I love reading all the info on here. I have learned so much and got some great tips. I am just starting out this year and so far have read 2 of Steve's books, great stuff.

Hey Mike what's going on? Welcome to the forum.

Do you just do lawns or do you offer other services?

Sorry for the delay in the reply with spring coming fast I have been really busy.
I have been handing out cards to every one I meet and spent days getting flyers and door hangers out there......Seems to be working got a Few phone calls

My main focus is Lawn Care at this time been in the industry for 10 yrs now and its time to go on my own! Along with those services I plan to offer most things that go along with caring for a yard. Any thing to keep the curb appeal up.

As far as were I am in Michigan...Pretty close to the Pinky Nice place my biggest concern is all the one man mowing guys around here I see a new one every day all season long...I am sure they will say the same about Me lol

Thanks for taking the time to respond :)

Well the first step is getting my truck and trailer done up with some nice logo's and lettering most around here dont.......I cant speak for every one around here but talking to some of these guys I find they dont have much experience in the field and i like to think that will work to my advantage :)

This is a life style not a job I love what I do
