    Hello everyone,
    I am new to lawn care and landscaping I have been running my own tree service company in Logan UT for a few years now and I kept getting asked if I would mow a lawn or do other types of landscaping at first I kept shrugging it off, "That's not what I do". But I hear it so often that I cant ignore it anymore I talked to a friend and we are going to add lawn care to the business or maybe start a separate business but work together? I don't know yet, It will be a journey and will be interesting to see what we can accomplish together. That being said my lawn care experience is mowing my own lawn killing some weeds and watering it when it gets dry. It cant be that much more difficult could it? haha... Basically I have a lot to learn.

    Welcome to our forum!

    or many years about embracing the new ways of doing business and networking; and I cannot ignore it any longer.
    What ways are you thinking about that you have avoided and what is your view on how ignoring them has effected your business?

    Just signed up. tryin to accept this dirt world that went digital

    I have been stubborn and dismissive for many years about embracing the new ways of doing business and networking; and I cannot ignore it any longer.. For the past 25 or so years I have been in the industry in North GA. Started out like most by mowing lawns around my part of town and working for others learning about the biz. In high school I opted for a two year technical degree in horticulture and then went on to get a two year associates degree in the same field. Many of my classmates went on to the golf course industry while I opted for making my own way. It has been a learning experience like no other. I have experimented with working for builders, developers, realtors, homeowners, and everyone else between. When I started out a firm handshake meant a deal was struck and both parties agreed to what was said. Now I have to have multipage contracts with wording that only my high school latin teacher would understand or the slicksters in suits that come up with the jargon. When the fat was thick and we rode high on the hog I had 5 crews doing maintenance and installs. After that bubble burst it was a whole new ballgame. It seems everything changed, from equipment technology, to sourcing labor that would actually work, new rules and regulations, and how new leads are found. I started over again five years ago when I decided to get hitched and start a family. I will say this; with all this new technology there is a lot more information out there for people just getting into the game. Having these resources and learning to use them has actually taught me a thing or two. Especially that even our industry is changing and if I don't learn how to change with it I will be another forgotten dusty tool in the barn. Its good to be with ya'll. I look forward to learning something new from everyone.
