Hey guys im a 20yr old landscaper from southern wv. I first decided to start my own business when I found out my fiancee was pregnant and I needed more time at home and my own hours.

I advertised a little,not that much. Went door to door and got most of my customer by doorhangers and some by word of mouth.

I am currently attending college for landscape design which I have been there for one full year.

As of this year I completed over 35 different mowing jobs. On a regular basis and going into next year I have 20 regular accounts weekly. I have fuller service and I offer all services to my customers.

Here is a list of my equiptment and tools:
(1) 60" Cub cadet commercial Tank
(1) 48" commercial engorcer from cub cadet
(1) self-propelled craftsman bagger mower
(2) husqvarna backpack blowers
(1)husqvarna commercial style trimmer
(1) stihl commercial style trimmer
(1) set of hedge trimmers
(1) spike aerator
(1) fertilizer spreader
2002 chevy 2500 HD silverado Chevy crew cab
2007 16x6.5 open trailer single axle

This is what I have and who I am. Next season I p[lan on expanding my business to 10 more residential accounts and atleast 5 commercial accounts.
I plan on sending out 2,500 flyers door to door and a few flyers at commercial spots hung up on information boards.

What do you guys think.??

By the way I have logo colared shirts and t-shirts
name of my business on the side of my truck and on the rear of my trailer for next yr. 2 man crew
