I started doing lawn care about 7 months ago. Lawn care isn't my first business venture but know enough to add my 2 cents. All my mentioned equipment below cost less than $5000. I didn't buy all used. I am a little mechanical inclined. I Bought mostly used and read up on basic routine maintenance. The best advice I can give is buy the most with your money, not always the best and latest. Remember you are starting up. If you spend most of your money on that package from what I see you are going to need more money for more stuff anyway.
