I just moved from NYS to West Central Fl, Citrus county and it is in 3 year drought mode as far as lawn care is concerned! They have 70% retired people some of which hire out lawncare/home repair.
I have mower, trimmers, trailer, truck, as well as my handyman homeowner skills in welding, carpentry, PM of all size vehicles,etc.
Since Sept 11, jobs are non-existant or low pay, I need input as to business startup at this time.
Feedback has been that locals do not showup for work as soon as they have enough money for parting or fishing!
