We plan to add a Jrco Aerator and Dethatcher. We also plan to start doing fertilizing and will most like go with Lesco products and spreader. We may even add another M60 tank due to a rather large account we are working on. We will just have to see this spring how things go.

Welcome to the forum

Nice setup....

You should advertise on that trailer.. I know you got some on your truck but a rolling billboard like that.. you can't just leave it blank.. just my opinion

How long have you been in business for ? I am about to start my 3rd year in business and I don't even have a commercial mower yet. *

Hopefully I'll get my commercial mower soon. I can't wait till that day happens. Hopefully this year or next year



P.S. Woohoo.. 100 posts

Thanks, we plan to add our logo and tag line to the side of the trailer and put contact info on all sides of the trailer very soon. It was just a money issue last season. We just started in July of 2007 and could have picked a worst time. The drought started in the end of June. We still managed to pick up a few accounts though and landed a decent size account in September that should keep us pretty busy in 2008.

I just checked out your site and I LOVE your logo and tag line! That is awesome!

If you put this logo on the side of your trailer, it would look amazing!

How did you come up with this?

My partner and I have been looking to start a business on our own for sometime now. I have previous experience in lawn care and decided that this would probably be our best route. We both make good money doing what we do now, which explains the new equipment, but we are just looking for some independence. As far as timing on the business it was just a matter of research on equipment and putting all the legal aspects into place before receiving a green light. Our name just kind of came out of nowhere
one day while we were brain storming. My parter came up with the name and I kind of came up with the tag line as a joke. We all decided that it was catchy and went with it from there. Since placing it on the truck and our uniform shirts we have received a lot of positive feedback.

All I have to say it's a pretty cool name and I love your slogan... just too original

You know, you could also add pet waste removal services and it would totally fit with your name. I bet there is money to be made with that!

Whats next on your wish list of things to get or things to do?
