    First off, welcome to lawnsite. Second, you will find that when you ask an unspecific question your going to get some smart a$$ answers, especially if the question has been asked by every new comer to the site. Some topics have been brought up a million times. If you do a search you can find a lot of answers. Try to give us some idea of what type of properties you're looking to get and what your equipment is.

    Example. 1/4 lot with a 48" mower or larger lots with a 60" rider. The more info you give while asking your question the better the responses are going to be.
