Equipment needed for a full organic program

I have a lesco granular spreader, backpack sprayers and a JRCO tine rake for my residential lots of 7K sq ft or less. I also rent an aeartor when needed.

Will I be able to run a full fledged organic program with these tools?

I plan to have MAYBE one customer that signs up for organic this year. So I can't afford to invest in huge equipment yet. But I need to know I am prepared to service them before I offer the service. It's a 4-5K sq ft yard, I'm fine with heavy things but I will not spend all day at this one prop.

One customer -> a shovel(s), rake(s), wheel barrow, and mower with a mulching blade. As you have already indicated, rent the aerator when you need it.
