    All right! Well, I hope you have a great Fall season. It's been a fantastic year so far here in Greater Cincy :)

    Take care,

    Hello Gentleman, I'm from the Northern Kentucky Area myself. I am a firefighter/paramedic and looking to start up my own lawncare business in the spring of next year. Any advise or information you all could give me would be great. Just looking to add a little extra money to my income. Thinking about 15/20 lawns weekly. Thanks

    I'm in Trenton Ohio ,next to Hamilton. I just started part time this year after debating about it a couple of years. It has been a pretty good year.

    Fire/Grass - my rookie advice would be buy good equipment, start slow, always do your best work ,and don't be afraid to charge what you will be happy with. If you set your prices too low ,you will get plenty of work ,then you'll start rushing to make up for it and your company will suffer.

    Hey guys, thanks for the response! I've done alot of reading, and one things for sure, I don't want to low ball anyone. Another question for ya. Before I go out and buy all kinds of equipment, should I use what I have on hand till I start getting some backing.

    Equipment on hand:

    John Deere 38" deck riding mower.
    21" Craftsman push mower
    Homelite trimmer and blower

    Only looking to do smaller residentual to start out, nothing say more then a acre/two tops

    And any info on the Northern/Kentucky side of business would be great.
