Hello, everyone! My name is Brandon Caruthers, and I'm with B.C. Lawn Care. I started my own business in 2016 with just a pickup truck, a push mower, and a weed eater. Since then, I've upgraded my equipment to include a big, wide cutting, line laying, 50" toro and a leaf blower. I take pride in my work and I value repeat customers.

I take pride in the work that I do. I have mowed grass for 15 years. I have always wanted to be my boss and have my own business. I want to have something that I will be able to pass down to my children. I don't want them to have to work their entire life. I love meeting new people.

Brandon did a nice job. The only critique I have is not necessarily with Brandon, but with the company and communication skills. It would be nice to know at least an estimated time when the lawn will be maintained. I understand it is not in stone but would be appreciated.
