Here is the simplest way to decide what you want to do. Look at both situations and consider one thing alone. Can I make money with my current truck/equipment etc on this route? If the answer is Yes, then look at the next step to the puzzle. Can I maintain both routes using what I have now as far as equipment? If the answer to the second part is Yes, then do both. It is good to be established in two area because as you grow, you are growing in two directions, whereas if you only establish in one area, you can only grow one way. Think about what you currently have for equipment and whether or not you can do it with said equipment. Once you start mowing you will make money and the newer better equipment will come in time, if it doesn't, then you need to re assess where you are in your pricing. Good luck with your startup, I think you will do fine in whatever decision you make.
