That's a great answer!

I wouldn't say never myself, but I might say it's a bit of a ways down the road.

Im confused here, who is running this business. You or her? As KTO mentioned, let me know how the broom works for you as well.

This could be an entirely different thread all on it's own.... I guess I must be lucky since my wife always tells me to buy additional equipment, supplies, vehicles, whatever is needed to make MY life easier, if we had to use a broom, she would volunteer herself to push it so I wouldn't have that to do as well. Guess it's all how you look at YOUR business and who you let make decisions for you. I say let your wife push the broom a bit and see if she wants to get a blower anytime soon!

How's she going to get around when you are out using her broom on your lawn cutting jobs?

Its probably too late to pick up mowing accounts...doesnt mean you cant, its just not the time of year. In OK, you wanna start trying to get them no later than the first part of March....I am usually mowing by Spring Break.
To get customers now...tell everyone you know youre getting in the biz...run an ad in the classifieds for leaf removal about mid October. Put out some cheap flyers around town for leaf removal..
I have picked up some good mowing accounts off of leaf customers.
As for equipment...depends on what kind of cash you have to spend...if its very little, shoot for a rake and some tarps....If its more, maybe a back pack blower, rake and tarps.
Do some searches here on leaf removal...youll learn a great deal.
Good luck!
