Simple jobs. As time goes by you branch out and do new things.

Best to build up a customer base of weekly lawn service.

There is no best equipment there is the right equipment.

At 15 a 60" mower may be the best but you do not drive, own a truck trailer, and odds are you do not have the money for all three.

Are you going to work on side roads with little traffic and the cops will not be all over you? Then you could get a rider and pull your hand helds in a wagon.

Do you have an adult that can bring you?

Only afford a 21" SP to pull your wagon from job to job?

To start out and do a pro job you will need a 21" SP, stick edger, line trimmer,
and a blower. Best to get a BP blower over a hand held because the BP will be needed on fall clean ups. A hand held will not have the power to do clean ups.
Though if the money is not there get a Sthil hand held shredder vac.
