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!
As far as a drought goes no big deal 6 mo a year you will cut once a week, then every other week for the next 6 mo. All you have to do is show up and care about your work and you will do just fine.
As far as feedback goes worry about yourself, you will do much better. People just can't stand that the grass grows all year long
and the girls are half dressed. Enjoy the Sunshine State.
