Hi everyone, I live in Michigan and am moving to southern georgia in two months. I am a subcontractor up here, remodeling houses, but want to do something I love to do. I have done side jobs up here cutting small lawns, just for extra cash, and loved it, so thats what I want to do down there. I bought a 3/4 ton v10 dodge pickup and am buying a new trailer to get started. I have a push mower, troy bilt weedeater, and a john deere riding tractor, but want to get some good stuff that will really help me when I get started. So any recommendations on equipment would be great. Wont be able to buy a new mower, but around 2-3 thousand would be fine if possible, I dont even know. I have a few family members lined up for some business already, thats the easy ones. They live in subdivisions, so that will be nice. Atleast I will have some source of income to start. How much or how do I charge for a lawn? By sq ft, time, or what? And what about ideas for contracts and such? I have business cards already, have a good computer with some good programs, so I can make flyers, plus I have yard signs from my business, and will be getting my truck lettered. I just dont really know where to start, other than, someone asking how much I would charge, I look at it, think "well, it will take about 2 hours" so how about 40 bucks or so. Just an example. So any help, or advice would be great. Thank you so much for reading this, and have a wonderful labor day.
