Hello all. Thanks Steve for the great website. There is a ton of info here. I worked as a landscape architect in Florida for 12 years before being laid off in 2009. I rolled right into starting my own company. I started out offering design, installation, and maintenance services, not sure which of those services would take off. My intention was to let the market dictate where I focus my efforts. Well, after 15 months, I am busy with all 3 aspects of the business. They have all sort of grown together. I have about 12 maintenance accounts, have done about 7 or 8 residential installations, and done about $20K in landscape design. I have lots of opportunity in front of me. Thus far, I have done everything myself. It is time for me to staff up to take on some of the new work coming my way. I know from my past experience that the most important person, other than me, is going to be my administrator. This person will help with invoicing and staying organized. So, I hired that person this week and am very pleased.
No announcement yet.
