Default Hello

Hello... I'm DeWayne, I have kicked around the idea of starting my own lawn/landscape business for several years now. It began in '86 when I was working for a local landscape contractor, and has continued since. Although I went in a different direction when I was hired by the City as a backhoe operator. I did continue to do small landscape and lawn jobs on the side. Because of administrative restructuring and staff reductions, I chose to leave that job. I now drive a ready-mix concrete truck. Hours are sporadic, and I was laid off last year from Dec to June. So I have for the past year been getting things in order to launch my business. I will be buying a Gravely Zero-Turn in February. I also have a 10x20 greenhouse up and running. I look forward to finally joing the discussions on GopherHaul !!!!

You sound like you have a little 'ol school in you? It is never too late to get your thing off the ground, especially if it is something you love!
