I started a part-time thing with my son when he was 15 back in 2008.If I did not have a great full time job I could easily go full time lawn care if I wanted to.My son has more work than he can handle and stopped advertising 2 yrs ago.He still gets referrals.Stick it out and they will come.

milkie62 how far Up are you?

Facts to remember.

For most people their landscape business grows slow.

Most businesses fail in three years.

However if a new guy can stick it out by the fourth year it is worth it.

One of the keys to success is to keep costs low and avoid debt.
