Hey guys I just signed up from the site an am excited about opening a lawn care business where I'll be looking to expand to pest control, etc. since I just started I was wondering if there was anything anyone would recommend me reading about the industry or what type of equipment is good to start off with. I have a pretty decent budget to start off with I believe.

Welcome and be sure you visit the Florida subforum here on Lawnsite, there will be information that is going to be more geographically accurate there.
