How to Begin?

I am seriously thinking about starting a business to apply organic fertilizer on lawns, but would like to know what anyone thinks about the best companies to deal with, what equipment to use, how much it would cost for a tank, supplies, etc. to get started. Really - ANY information on this. We live in Georgetown, TX. Thanks for any info. you can give.

I would invest in various organic fertilizers of all types and learn what works where, when, and on what. Blowing money on tanks is not cost effective until you see whether you even want to use tank sprayers.
Organic liquid ferts seem to clog everything up so gain experience with hose end sprayers before you make any investments.
I don't believe in having someone saying what is right for you and your area. General ideas that you test and note results to is your best business plan.
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
