    Tell your Dad that he'd be better off investing the $10,000 "grant" with me. (Who else would give a grant to two kids who didn't even know what mower to buy?)

    If my dad had 10,000 to give me, I wouldnt ever be touching a lawn mower.

    Well, then, enlighten us as to who would give a "grant" to...
    (taken from your profile)
    "Two 18 year olds trying to start up a successfull business while going to St. Thomas University"
    Is your area lacking for lawn care companies that badly, that someone is giving out startup funds to someone who isn't sure what to spend it on? For a part-time company?
