Starting NEW?

I am starting a new lawn care business in the spring and would really like some help on what I should purchase? Below is a list of things I already have. What should I buy if I had $10k to spend?

01' Chevy Silverado 1500
John Deere LX172 38" Rider
Stihl BR550 Blower
Stihl 90 Line Trimmer
Stihl Edger
Stihl MS290 Chain Saw
Stihl T81 Hedge Trimmers
Toro Commercial Push Mower 21"
Poulan Backup Line Trimmer

Things that I know I need to purchase is a standon or walk behind mower between 36" - 52" deck widths. Possibly a 60" zero turn mower, atleast a 16" dual axel trailer.

Mower, should I buy a a ZTR and a trailer and maybe a used walk behind? Or should I buy a nice stander and a walk behind? Or just a nice walk behind? I am going to be mostly just doing residential to start so what should I really go for?

Trailer, I do not have a space to house my trailer so I am thinking I should pick up a used covered trailer 16' + around $3k?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
