I have been throwing around the idea of buy an established lawn business. I owned a small one a couple of years aga, had to get out because of the birth of my first child (wife made me get out). But I have been looking at the this guys business. Being in Colorado, we can only mow between the months of April threw October. He has 150 residental clients that are all weekly. I will have to be driving arcoss town every day to get of my accounts done. He has been in the business for over 20 years he claims. The list of equipment he has is. 4 toro 21 in recyclers 4 ryan lawn aire 4 aerators 2 shindaiwa backpack blowers, 2 36 in toro recyclers, 2 shindaiwa trimmers 12ft single axle landscape trailer chevy box van 14'(runs great, 95k on it) 2000 model He is asking 170K for all this. He will hang around until I have a feel for what Im doing. I have been throwing this around for 2 weeks now. I found this web site about 1 week (great website), and have learned a lot about the business. But I need some input from all you guys. What do you think? He claims that he has been making around 120k a year. Cant provide yearly income (because uncle sam has no idea).
