Welcome to our forum! What got you to start your lawn care business and why did you decide to include irrigation? Did you ever work in that field before or did you just start it all on your own?

Hi Steve. I worked in the well and pump business for many years and got to know some irrigation contractors. I always took pride in my own lawn looking good so irrigation and lawn care were a great fit for me. ps. this site is great!

Oh Thank you!

What was your view of that industry? How does it compare / contrast to the lawn care, irrigation business?

It was ok. Working with 220 volt power and water always keeps you on your toes. It's much better being my own boss in the lawn care business though.Working in the pump biz was a plus for irrigation by allready knowing how the hydrolics of an irrigation system work.

What is your view of being your own boss now? Would you advise others to try this or no?
