Vinson's Lawn Care

Hey all, I am 20 yrs old and starting a lawn care business. I go to school (College) full time and also work at a Starbucks. I decided to do lawn care and land scapping because I going to school to be an Architect. Can't really decide what I like better Landscape Architecture or Architecture so I talked to a guy who is a Landscape Architect and he told me the best way to get started while in school (I'm in bachelors degree program for Business Administration...3rd year...going to grad school for architecture) was to start a lawn care/landscaping business and get some experience. I'm hoping to understand more about landscaping and maybe get some design experience too, oh and money. I have one yard, and maybe designing a walkway for it. Ha I don't have much equipment but I just started...I'll get more when I need it! I have a Bolens String Trimmer from Lowes, a shovel, 2 rakes, a gas can, and a set hedge trimmers.
