Thank you for your time. I am new to the forum and I am seeking advise on considering starting my own lawn and landscape business. I am 28 yrs old married with two kids. We both work two jobs and are unhappy in our current situation. (debt, stress, financial strain, etc....) The idea came after talking to a friend of mine who sugessted we start our own business. I live in an area were there are many lawn companys some that are here today gone tommorow and others that are doing really well. I know there is money to be made in this industry, but is it worth it? My wife is verry creative and loves to landscape she does a wonderful job of designing and implementing what she has designed. I would like to know if this is something that could be lucrative to pursue. Could it support a familly? Would it be a stable income? What about health, medical benefits? I would just like some direction on this. I do not own any equipment. I would need to invest in everything. (truck, trailer, mowers, edgers, trimmers, ect....) If this is something that I should undertake with my wife what do we do? A,B,C, and so on? What are your opinions and advise. I know there are people on this board who have done verry well in this business and are living comfortablly. Is there future in this? Please help a fella out. Thanks for your time and info.
