If your just starting your not far behind me I still dont have all the mowers and trailers i want!!! But I use my money to pay bills and truck. But if your really want to jump into making money lern to post on criag's list its free and it works. you get some cheep customers but starting out all money is good money .......I quite my job and now i get up in the morning and post on criags list ...ADDS Like this___> looking for big landscaping jobs.........Mowing today .........Trees great prices ..........Cleanups .......sine up for an acount and post every day in service homes and skilld trades .......Iv made so much money i started late last year like mid summer and maybe pulled 8,000 or more ....I didnt really keep acount and i know thats bad but i plane to keep better book keeping this year .........I just got a landscaping job today from a ladie that buys homes and flips them she gave me a budget of 1,500 $400 in plants $120 in labor rest profit. You dont have to have tones of stuff to get rollin. Weedeater mower. poll saw. $99 ..rakes and trash bags ......I got me a weedeater that can add atachments and got me the hedge trimmer atachment .......Man that has made me some big money and saved time. Flyers are so slow. I got a 10,000 dollor landscaping /cleanup job off dallas for hire .....A contractor bidding site .........Free sign up. Everyone needs to look on criags list There are some big money customer that search that site .......Iv got calls from people with 3 million $ homes. I asked why your looking on that site? they told me because the last company the hired out of the phone book sucked!!!!

John,

Great insight! Do you want me to put your company name and phone number on the banner? If so, what number should I put on it?

Do you post to craigs list with the same spelling errors that you have on this post?? I find your post very hard to read. I would suggest taking a little time to proofread so you can sound a little more professional.
