Doing my footwork as well. On the matter of pricing, simple enough. Look up landscaping as if you are the one in need of service and study every website that is in your area and read the reviews on them. A lot of answers will come out of their own advertising. I have yet to even cut a lawn and am putting my rates together over the past couple of days. You can check out my basic format so far on facebook. Broom & Ladder Yard Care out of Portland,OR. Taking the time to do searches through LawnSite.com has been quite beneficial as well. It is like looking through a complete how to magazine. When you find your beneficial threads, subscribe to them.

Another question I have is this: the 2 most popular kinds of mowers for landscaping are walk behind and zero turn right?

Which one would be better for me and why??

Do you have any accounts yet? What is your budget? I personally run a 36" wb because i market directly to smaller yards and most of them have gates in my area. My buddy markets all the gated community with big yards and runs a 52" ztr. Both work perfect for us but if we ever had to switch it would not be productive. See where I'm coming from?

start with the walk behind , they are more versitile and easier to learn in my opinion then when you can get a zero turn , will make your life easier on the big properties. Or alot of people are using the standers now I personally don't have any experience with them. Mainly see what accounts you have and think you will be able to get and get the best equipment for those accounts. I know alot of people that do well with a good push mower and a zero turn , and I know people that just have a walk behind , kinda depends on the accounts you are going to be servicing , like if your first account is a soccer field a walk behind would not be your best choice. my opinion though , hope it helps.

A stander is a walk behind that you simply stand on right....so the machine carries you the entire time instead of having to "walk behind" it

a stander is different from a walk behind, kinda somewhere between a walk behind and a zero turn.
