Here's what I've learned so far:
1. Buy your tools at yard sales or flea markets
2. Don't skimp on quality, but you might be able to for a short while until it starts breaking down.
3. Buy some of the equipment as you go, as to maximize your cash flow.
4. Add quality hand pruners to the list.
Does anyone recommend winter services that won't use up too many resources while I'm getting ready for March?
