My best friend and i started cutnturf a lawn mowing, trimming, cleanup, etc. business. We have been friends for 3 years now and have never had a fight or conflict. My history. I live on a farm with 9 horses and chickens, i worked with a guy who farmed 400 acres of hay, corn, wheat, soybeans and learned mechanics and farm knowledge. My best friends history. He is a hot rod guy that has tons of mechanical knowledge. We first thought of doing a lawn bussiness two years ago but never went through with it until this winter. We found a gravely pro 150 50" wb for cheap in awesome condition. Found a sulky for $25 which was a steal! We bought a homelite curved shaft weed whip for $12 and picked a straight shaft weed whip out of the garbage whit all it needed was a spool. We also got a walk behind edger for free. My friend has a 97 Tahoe to pull my 5 by 10 trailer.

we are still trying to find one that is a resonable deal, all the ones around me have been 30 dollars over priced and can not talk them down.

Best of luck two both of you guys. This is basically how me and my buddy started out last year and now we are doing really well. You wont know what to do with all the money you will be earning. Just make sure you can be reliable.

Thats not true. I have never bitched out my buddy, but we have had to discuss alot of issues that we do not agree upon. We are both really smart in industry related problems that occur and we both know how to do them but sometimes we both just have different ways and eaither way will work but we need to agree upon one way. Usually one of us gives in and doesnt care enough to have their way.

One of my best friends and I became roomates in our first year of college......your good friends till your with them every day. Began to *hate* him rather fast, and by the end of the first semester we had switched roomates. After we didn't live together anymore, we were back to normal.

At least your only working with your bud.


Good luck

ya well me and him are friends, but our friends are not friends. So i guess were not always hanging out so that might be why it has worked out good. Me and my buddy also have a group of friends that we both are friends with. Sort of confusing but it works.
