Hey, Really new to the Website and Really new to the Landscaping Business. Basically a friend and I want to start a landscaping business doing houses around the area. We have basic supplies, a lawn mower, an edger, and some other random tools. We recently had some landscapers who came to my parents home and did a relatively bad job. After seeing there work I thought to myself, Hey I was out in the Iraq heat at 135 with humidity wearing 60 pounds of gear and ammo and said to myself, I can do this . It has always been a dream of my friend and I to run our own business and working hard. I just had a couple of questions, and hoped you all could help an Ex Soldier out, since you all seem like nice guys. Oh and we both already own trucks so we are good in that department. 1. What kind of money yearly can a 2-3 man operation expect to make with just mediocre amounts of business? 2. We don't have much landscaping knowledge, should we get more experience before we go out into the business? 3. What kind of losses or expenses can we expect for a small operation? 4. And will we have fun and feel good doing it? After my time in the Army I realize that going back to school would be difficult for me. Anyways thats all if you guys could give me some ideas and answers to my question I would Really appreciate it. By The way for any ex-Army guys out there. I was in the 1st Cavalry Division 1-7 Garry Owen and the 1-12 Cavalry Regiment as a M1 Tanker..hence the name Cavalry624 Thanks again everyone.
