    Hold off for a little bit. You really don't know what you are doing. Why don't you use that deere for a couple years and than get a job with a landscape company. That way you can get some experience and actually know what you are doing.... aside from that I'll answer your question... on your trailer it would be a good idea to have a mower, trimmer, blower, and a edger... what kind you get all depends on how much $$ you want to spend...
    Also, a good idea is to get some hand tools like a hedge clipper some loppers, all the shovels and rakes etc. and a wheelbarrow so you can edge and mulch...
    Approach your dad and tell him what you are thinking... see if hes on board... I mean you really should not dread it... its not like your telling him you got a girl pregnant ;)
