I worked 12 years for companys like trugreen and at the rate these people pay you dont have alot of money.I had more experiance than most of the guys running them.I borrowed a push lawn mower and put it in the back of my 84 regal.Then I bought a craftsman convert weed eater.Then a used echo blower.Next a set of echo shears.Last but not least the edger att.I had 5 houses when I said to myself that I had enough to pay for my mower.I went and got the cheapest trailer I could find to pick up my new 36 inch Gravely.2 years later I no longer own any of it but the mower.It's said to say that you cant follow your dreams.I now have a 6x12 trailer,a 48 Gravely z,a 4 door dodge ram(04),and 15 grand in two cycle.Not counting all the plants in the nursery or any thing that goes with that aspect of the business.Do what you can with what you got.But dont think for a second that the way you look does'nt keep you from getting alot of work.You just have to work a little harder thats all
