squrl78 is on a distinguished road
Default Hello from Western Illinois

Im across the river from St. Louis and almost where I feel like I want to be with my business. My goal is 10 yards and I have 7 right now. I work as a full time Paramedic and have a part time lawn service. Lawn Medic is my company name and I started last year with an old 1985 Cub Cadet rider, used Craftsman push mower, 20 year old Stihl weed eater, used Craftsman blower, and a borrowed trailer. This year I made some upgrades. I bought a trailer, a used 48 Woods commercial hydro walk behind (bargain priced), new Stihl SH86 blower / vac, magnets for my truck, and small maintenance items / parts for equipment. I feel good about it and I have fun doing it. I am learning a lot from this site about the business / legal end and customer service has always been my priority. Any hints or tip would be great.

Welcome to our forum!

That's a great story and I like your business name. You could really come up with some killer logo and marketing material with such a business name.
