Then I would say that you do not want to do quality work to build this a good service business. I own my company and I work on every property that we maintain. However, it is funny that most of the time, I put my helper on my $8000 mower and I use a $300 trimmer. Now, if you think that makes no sense for the owner to use the cheaper tool and do that harder work, then there is one thing about this business that you need to learn very quickly. Detail work is what makes or breaks a LCO when it comes to customer satifiaction. A mower does just that, it mows. The detail of trimming and Bed edging is what is going to set off the clean, crisp look of the lawn. If you think that an $8 an hour helper is going to do the detail work and not get complaints and care about it as much as you should, then you are mistaken. You need to learn to do the detail as clean and as quick as possible and I would suggest you do it more often than your help, if you actually get this business rolling.
