Nick,

Thank you so much for sharing with us your photos! For all of us reading, can you tell us a little about how you got started and when you got started? How long should an lco be in business before they reach the size you are now?

Which is your latest piece of equipment? Can you walk us through some of your equipment too and when you got it and why?

I started my business in 2003 with just myself a SUV, 12ft trailer and a 52" walk behind. In 2004 I added a 92 chevy 1500 and a 16ft trailer and I started to offer lawn treatments after I got certified. Also in 04 I took many horticulture and business courses and got my OCNT certification. In 2005 I hired 2 employees and bought a 2001 Ford f-350 and a 48" bobcat walk behind and began offering snow removal and landscape installation and design. In 2006 I bought a GMC dump truck and I hired a third employee. This year I hired a 4th employee and bought a 2007 John Deere 54" ZTR.
I have approx. 100 customers with about 40% being commercial.
I would recommend being solo longer you will make more money if you stay small longer. Don't be in a hurry to grow large fast it is true slow growth is good growth. When I first started I was growing at 300% per year and now its still at about 150%. I have never advertised because I do good work and have great customer service. Also have a business plan it really does help keep you on track. Don't start off with low prices, thats what I did when I started and it is hard to get them to where they should be. Not to mention it harms our industry. I would say don't hire anyone until you are on your 3rd year of being in business and don't buy more equipment until you (a.) have the accounts already and (b.) can pay for it in one year of use.

I wish everyone lots of luck and rain! Remember also it gets hard at times but just keep focusing on your goals and dreams.
