If you have to ask a question like that, you shouldn't be doing it. Come on, do you really NOT know what you need to mow grass? You have no clue what you'd need to trim with? Do you even know how to USE a mower? Hummmm, what can I use to blow this walkway off? Can someone show me how to do it? :dizzy::rolleyes:

OK so I came off alittle harsh. Do some research on how to run a business. What you need to run it. Then do your research on what types of equipment your business will need. Asking that kind of question is too broad. As already said, this place is a wealth of knowledge if you just take the time to read.

Your off to a good start if you can work on mechanical stuff.

Read,read,read, then read some more. :) Most every question you can think of is already posted on here, just have to look and read.

I had trouble estimating mulch jobs a few months back. I didn't ask how to do it, I read all the threads pertaining to it, now I can look at a place and know how much it will be without all the hassle of measuring and calculating.

I know it's a lot to take in but you'll need to understand everything and know what to look for and at the young age of 14, you'll need to read and understand everything before you just jump in.
