Newbie Landscaper Pro Landscaper Book

Newbie Landscaper Pro Landscaper, my newest book. At over 450 pages, this is the greatest collection of question and answers I have researched from my Gopher Lawn Care Business Forum. At times the responses to questions can be a little long winded but I have left them that way intentionally. I wanted the reading of this book to feel as if you had a father or uncle in the landscape business who would take the time to really get in depth and answer questions you had from the perspective of a person who has been in the lawn care and landscape industry for decades.

This book will help your lawn care business grow overtime as you can keep coming back to it and review issues you hadn’t faced previously but now are facing.

Here is just a taste of the topics covered. If you aren’t thinking about these questions now, you will be in the future.
