This summer I have enough money to buy the equiptment I would need to mow as many lawns as possible in the shortest amount of time. I'm contemplating if it's better to go bigger or stay small? Last summer I had a small amount of clients but could do a $60.00 job with one other person in 20-25 min, with two push mowers and an edger. This summer I'm looking to have a crew of myself, and two other guys. I don't know whether to get a large Zturn mower, another large tractor mower, and two push mowers. Or go with one large mower, and three push mowers. Or two smaller cheaper tractors and three push mowers? As well, should I get a 16 foot trailer? Or 20 ft ? If I get the two big mowers I'd most likely need the 20 I think, but if not the 16 would work just fine? Should I be trying to get clients with yards 3 acres for $150.00 a time? Or go for clients with acres and two acres for $60.00 - $100.00? As well large lawns I don't pick up the cuttings right? Maybe just the part around the house? I heard clients is the hardest thing to find so I'm wondering if my marketing stradtegy will work? I'm getting 5000 quality large flyers made and sent into a targted area of mailboxes. Then I plan on sending two very good looking girls door to door with panflits, brochures, and business cards talking up a storm about my company (Brand new equiptment, tons of experiance, owner is on EVERY job site, take a limitied number of clients to ensure satisfaction, a prestigeous company, have a super nice website, if you break contract due to poor qulity we owe you a free mow, ect.). Then I'm going to go door to door introducing myself and my company after houses have heard about it from flyers, and my girls. As well this whole time I plan on posting signs around these areas and flyers on mailboxes ect. I'm going to advertise March, April, and May and my contracts will start June 1st. I'm thinking I will need roughly 75 - 150 clients to achieve what I would like this summer. Is this possible? I want to make anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 a day charging $50 - $75 an acre. All my equiptment will be brand new, my truck is a beutifull white Ford F350, and I will have a big nice white enclosed trailer, all nicely designed with my logo and company name, hopefully giving off a good impression. To note, I will be advertising and working in a very rich area of Calgary, Alberta where the houses are over a million dollars each so there is lots of money around this area. Is this a good business plan? And what type of equiptment shuold I learn twords? I will have enough capital really to buy whatever I want after this winter season. Please, someone help me! Thanks!
