Publisher's Summary

Larry has been a landscaper for years, working at a small lawn care company. He becomes disgruntled with his boss and decides to start his own business when his wife gets pregnant. After an unexpected car accident, Larry faces the reality that he owns a job instead of a business. Join Larry as he experiences employee troubles, unhappy clients, and ultimately realizes the dream of owning a small business. 

Learn how to start a successful lawn care business, implement systems and procedures, advertise your services creatively, track business financial health, and build a world-class team. Join Larry on his journey from solo-preneur to entrepreneur. The book shows how you should create estimates for lawn care clients, market, and advertise your business, create a brand, and build a website. All the elements of Larry's turnaround can be implemented in every green-industry company to make it more efficient and profitable.

Life story

Basically a life story told, takes a while to really get going. It’s a little more of story tale than business advise in lawns.

A wonderful ambitious young man, 25% useful data.

Most significant issue was his suggestion to replace "walking a property" with standardization price per acre & using Google earth or maps. I'm honestly at a loss for words at how ridiculously irresponsible that is. even if the Google pictures were taken yesterday(which they are not) there are a multitude of ground conditions unseen by Google. Not to mention perimeter issues &/or mechanical issues. Relying on Google for anything more then an idea of property volume is terrible practice.
Other than that there is good data on developing systems, hope the best for the young man.

Great book

This book changed how I ran my company! I was looking at being a solo guy, but realized with the ability that I have to offer quality work, and jobs we can compete with the larger guys. Thanks Mike!

Loved the book

The book was a fun story sharing a fable of a lawn care company going from start to almost being destroyed than to success. I run a carpet cleaning and pressure washing business and this really helped me grasp what we need to strive towards.

Disappointing

Just a caution for anyone looking to buy this looking to start up a business or looking for advice around business ownership. Its actually a poorly read novel. It makes it really difficult to learn anything about the business side of setting up etc because there is inexplicably a story being told in the middle. My fault for not properly paying attention to the description so I thought it might be helpful to tell people here.
