When I moved into a house that needed a little bit of work, I saw dollar signs. I decided to take the projects one at a time, and then to fix the place up in hopes of making a profit someday. However, I discovered a significant challenge when I started looking at fixing the backyard. The land contained all kinds of hills and valleys, which I knew would make it hard to regrade the land. In an effort to speed things up, I rented a backhoe and tried to use it. However, since I didn't know the first thing about heavy machinery, it was a frustrating day. My blog discusses the intricacies of professional equipment, so that you aren't caught unprepared during your next landscaping project.
