Looking to start lawn care business after my recent spinal fusion. I am a brick paver installer by trade (it's all I've ever done since coming to this country from Mexico 8 yrs. ago, so I'm very good at it) but surgeon said that was out and to look for another occupation. So I needed to look for something to still be able to provide for my family and not feel useless. I have set aside $5K to start this business. Could you pros please advise me the best way to invest that $$ as far as equipment, helpers, and/or any other suggestions. I am a hard worker, quick learner and self-motivated. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Also, anyone from So. Fla? I'm from West Palm Beach. Thanks!
