I posted this same subject awhile back but need to make a decision. I like mowing, line trim and edging, (basic lawn care), but dislike full service accounts. The shrub trimming, raking, hauling & dumping clippings, weed control, etc. I like to get in and get out and keep moving. I'm a solo operator. I have several options. 1. Hire an employee either outright or thru an employment agency which would cover the work comp. & liability issues. Either way, there is always the problem of employee turnover after the investment of time to train them on their work requirements. 2. Sub-contract work I don't want to do. 3. Slowly weed out full service accts. and gradually replace them with basic lawn care. My longer term goal is to run a crew or multiple crews. Handling the daily operations, maintenance of equip, quality control,(making sure equip. isn't abused-torn up), adding customers, billing, P.R., etc. First things first. I had a previous business where I had several employees. Big headache but the monetary rewards made it worth it. I got into this LCO to simplify my life, make a decent living and have as few hassles as possible. Now I'm about to go a different direction it seems. Any advice or opinions about any of the above would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
