    Very nice pics Mike! Can you tell us what you got first and how you scaled up?

    If you could buy an all new setup, what would you do differently from what you currently have?

    What got you to start your lawn care business?

      well Steve.
      I have been in grading and masonary for around 18 year working for my Father. But wanted to run somthing on my own for a good while.
      Last year 07 . I started Mowing Grass on Fridays only. With a Craftman 42in Rider. It's what I cut my own grass with for the last few years.
      I have a 4x8 trailer that I started out with. First Commercial thing I got was a Honda Trimmer $300 new, then a Honda HRX217 Trim Mower $900 new, a Huskavarna Back blower from lowes $199.(did not make it past 1 year with only 1 day a week ).
      Thats what I started with Last year .
      More to come

          Mike,

          With all your experience in grading and masonry, why did you decide to do lawn care? Why not open your own masonry business? Will you be offering masonry services in the future and hardscaping?

            I think your sign should be outside the trailer, not inside

                      retaining wall

                      Mike,

                      Very nice job on the wall. What advice could you give for somebody like myself, who does not have a masonry background, that wants to get into building retaining walls and such for their existing landscape business.

                        The Pics of the wall that I put up Is all dry stacked (no morter/cement)
                        Start with a good footing and Keep it Level

                            Very nice.

                            I love the fall colors too.

                            Mike, if a new lawn care business owner wanted to start offering retaining walls, what size job would you recommend they start with? Would they find more potential problems the higher the wall is?

                            Also, what kind of guarantee should they offer on their work?
