Looked on Craigslist found a wore out Craftsman 44in tractor, bought a Craftsman power head with a edger and trimmer attachment and a weed eater blower. All of it fit into the back of a short bed Ford Ranger. I put out massive amounts of flyers, every spare penny I had I put into marketing. By Jan of the second year I had enough customers prepay for the first year of service I bought all new commercial equipment and a trailer. With in 2 months of that I put a second truck on the road. With in a month of that i was swamped with commercial work so I put a commercial truck on the road. Inbetween all this I added tree service and fert service. All our contracts are set up on 12 month pay, so when the grass is not growing we still have money coming in. Next will be ramping up the power washing. Have the trailer in the shop lettered up and ready to go. Will be doing a marketing roll out on it next week as well.

Oh and we might get into fire wood if we can get enough trees in the yard
