New To Lawn Site - Thinking about starting a Lawn Care biz in Serbia

New To Lawn Site - Thinking about starting a Lawn Care biz in Serbia, but first I'd like to learn the ropes and get my own lawn perfect (to have at least some references to show off)

My name is Ati, I am from the country of Serbia (no, not Siberia) - its in Eastern Europe, and the climate is very hot in the summer, cold with snow in the winter.

Am excited to have found this site

Thanks, well I have nothing fancy, just some basic ones for home use atm; as at this time I am trying to figure out how to make my own lawn perfect, and when I do I can then offer services for others.

I live in the state of Voy-voh-deenah (Vojvodina), and its the agriculture hearth land of this country - so at the moment there's no shortage of water, meaning there are no watering restrictions at all.

For example, at my house we have both city water, and 2 wells - and my irrigation system works off the 400 feet deep well.

My lawn is struggling from moss, crab grass, and some weird grass which is similar to grab grass just not so 'potent' and strong and it grows these mini flower like thingies on the end (on each bud like 10 of those micro flowers)

In addition to that, I have some problem areas where the watering system can't go so most likely I'll have to extend the water system a lil bit by adding some more heads to get to those areas.

Thanks
