Want to get into lawncare

Hey everyone,

I really dont have any professional experience in lawncare.
but i really want to get into it and eventually get into landscaping.

Does anyone know any good book that i can get?

Im thinkin about starting doing lawncare part time on the side while i still keep my regular paying job

Thanks
Ty

Hi TyDaMan,

What type of book are you looking for? Books on running a business or on lawn care?

There is a "How to Start a Lawn care business" book from Entrepreneur magazine. Do a search on Google or Entrepreneur.com

Home Depot actaully has some decent books for beginners, Scotts website is also pretty decent, and try your local library.

I just started about 1 month ago. I bought a book from amazon.com called Start Your Own Lawn Care Business. Your step-by-step guide to success by Eileen Figure Sandlin. It is recommended by Entrepreneur Magazine. A very good read. That book was a great start for me but the best start is this web site. I have referred back to the book a dozen times but this web site every day. I highly recommend that book. Good luck.
