    I did a few residential lawns last year and have decided to make a go of this business. Would love to get some feedback in regards to any tips that might help me out.

    I am 99 % sure on starting of with a Dixie Chopper 2050 as my primary, anyone have any comments either negative or positive about the mower.

    work for someone else for a bit that does ALL aspects of landsacping before you go balls deep. i wish i did this. started out all i wanted to do was maintence. now i want to do hardscapes/contracting landscaping work. dont know how to do too much of it, or have the time to work for someoen else to learn. nobody wants to teach their competition either.
    think abou tthat

    little to no customer loyalty in this industry. the homeowner can always do most of the work themself if they dont liek the price. not w. plumbling, HVAC, electrical.....

    Try posting this thread in the lawncare forum, this is the landscaping forum and mowing and mower questions don't pertain. And now we are very pissed off
