I grossed 50k last year, mowing weekly and working four days a week with helper going at least eight hours a day in the spring and summer, I went very easy in the fall and could have made ten grand more if I focused (instead I was into other things, like dirt bikes, woman and my house projects). Customer are in a very small radious and very profitable. Almost 8K revenue every spring month, asking 8k for them all. Equipment is also for sale, all 2004 Encore hydro walks, 48 and 32 w two bags, plates and sulkys. Mowing trailer with water, trimmer and basket accessories. All Redmax 2 cycles, 8000, strato trimmer, older trimmer, hand blower, bush trimmers, blade grinder and lots of accessories. Call to veiw equipment or talk about the accounts.

What up!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm just starting out this spring! I need to get an application license, clients, business license, trailer, z turn, 36" and more clients. I'm all over shawnee, lenexa, op, olathe. I know just enough to be dangerous right now. I've been reading post in here for a couple weeks and have learned a lot already.
Good to hear from everybody.

Change in plan

I guess I'm not going to mess with Fertilizer right now. I don't have to be full service overnight. I'll work on getting my first account here then conquer the world. I want to be considered professional. I think being professional is being able to say no also. I have never sprayed and would die if I caused an animal or kid to be sick because I mixed something wrong or sprayed wrong.

I know a good referal for your fert/ weed control apps if you're interested. I just met this person and think he's my new go-to guy. He does trees too..
I am looking for lawn renovation work like aerations and landscaping like mulch installs, topsoil, sod installation, seeding, verticut, power raking, etc, when you're too busy mowing in the spring keep me in mind and I'll send you mowing clients in your area as payback, or I'll give you a kick back or contractor rate. I'll send you some personal info and service descriptions so you can see how I do things.

Varies, I just heard a guy who charges ten bucks for a thousands square feet, another who charges eighteen fifty per thousand, I charge ninty nine minumum but some lco's charge sixty to eighty. Depends on the clients I guess

I'm probally going to come down some this year to be more competative...
I was always renting the aerators and that is expensive so I tried to charge more, but when I buy my aerator this year I'll be lowering prices slightly
