Patios and Walkways only?

Right now i own a lawn care business in Pa, but i have been doing some hardscaping and i enjoy it. Mostly patios and walkways. All of the customers have been pleased so far and some suggested about going into this end of the business. I was wondering if you guys think it is possible to do walkways, driveways, and patios only. Concrete, pavers, and bluestone would be the material used. I would probably maintain a few mowing accounts for cashflow purposes

Yes!

Start educating yourself and take classes and get certifications when they are available. My business is ponds and hardscapes/landscaping, but I keep enough mowing accounts for one day a week. This keeps me in the neighborhoods and I get paid for advertising (mowing). I'll always keep a mowing route or crew. Hardscaping can get touchy here and there if your not a bigger company.
