15 s10's or danger rangers

15 5x10 trailers

15 belt drive walk behinds

15 trimmers, handheld blowers, edgers.

^everything used, probably going to cost about $40k

then 30k on advertising. (50,000 door hangers, billboards, etc)


Spam out the whole town so that every single household is exposed to the advertising at least twice a day.


and construct a throne so I can sit in it and laugh as I become the ruler of lawncare in my area.
