Hi
Any Landscapers or Business owners or others with advise/comments on questions below:
I need to relocate to Boca Raton or Palm Beach County Area for family reasons. (Mother-in-law needs help) She lives in Boca but I have never been there only have met her when she visits us in NC.
Business is doing good here in RTP, NC. How is economy there? I do work from lawn maintenance, landscaping to tree service.
I normally only hire two full time employees.
We do not have much of a choice but to move. We just have to find the right area with the right business atmosphere.
What would be some of the better areas to relocate to in the county/area for this type of work as well as to live.
Thank You
Joe

My dad owns a small landscaping business in Delray/Boca... be careful: everyone's having troubles now-a-days, and they are a dime a dozen in the area. Good luck!

I'm sorry to tellyou this, but I think that right now, it will be difficult to start a landscape business.
A lot of foreclosures,
A lot of people doing there own'
Not a lot of new construction
Everything is so far apart, you would spend a lot of money on gas.
Good luck, and hope that enjoy te area, maybe work at somehting else, until the economy picks up.
I'm not a landscaper, but just my observation, about the condition of tings around here.

All of the ones by me except for a few are doing terrible right now.
There are certainly a lot of great deals to be had on trees etc..
No business for them, it is a bad situation.
In fact most every business is feeling the struggle right now.

Simple solution, move the Mother-In-Law IMHO

While we're on this subject, anyone know any lawn services near downtown WPB that can come every other week?

I have a small city lot, less than a 1/4 acre, with very little lawn, and the guy I have now temporarily is charging me waaay too much at $30/cut - just lawn cutting and "edging", no bush trimming, etc!! Anybody have a good service they use, or know who to recommend? Same thing with pool guys!

Thanks!
