Im new here but have been in "The Biz" for 18 years now. I had started in maint but into landscape construction installing brick driveways, patios, irrigation etc. I had a full time hydroseeding crew 2 guys all day everyday 600 residential lawn installs one summer plus roadsides, pastures etc.. I had 10 full time people at one point but decided to downsize after having kids. Less stress and still make a good living. I am an EMT on a volunteer fire dept and was blessed to deliver my last child. Emt thing came in handy lol. I have alot of friends in the buisness that contact me daily for buisness advice, I hope to be able to help the new guys here. When I started nobody would give me any advice, so I would like to be able to offer any advice I can. I also hope to pick up new ideas here. I always would talk to other landscapers at trade shows and it seemed that people would give advice if you were not a threat to their buisness.
Welcome to our little world here. Gald you came and found us. How about some photos of some your work By the way how did you find us?
