What's your favorite mower brand?
You can't go wrong with a Honda. But, the best mowers are the ones that you can depend on every day. Honda has been quite a partner for me.
How do you beat the heat when working outside?
Hydrate early and often. Start drinking water as soon as you wake up and don't stop until you go to bed at night. Take breaks often and take them in the shade. I'll sweat through 4-5 shirts per day on 90 degree days. Have dry spare shirts on hand along with sunblock and a hat!
How did you get into lawn care?
It's something I've always enjoyed doing and with encouragement from my biggest supporter, I left my office job to work with Mother Earth.
Advice for anyone interested in starting their own lawn care business?
Focus on quality, not quantity. Accounts will pay for a service provider who shows they care, and that takes time. 90 minutes at a home that includes some dialogue with the homeowner and you're more likely to not miss something if you are in and out in 15 minutes. And finally, don't blow all the topsoil from planters and gardens.
How do you relax after a long day?
I landscape my own house and show my grandchildren how to garden!
Would love to have him do additional maintenance in our flower beds and on our fruit trees.
