    Hello all!

    My name's John. I'm 17. I joined the forum to get info and hopefully learn some stuff. I created Southall Mowing a year ago. One of my friends help me out on larger jobs. However, since we're under 18 we can't get insurance, an LLC license and all the good stuff to become reputable. By next year that will change. I mow quite a few residential lawns. No commercial yet, but I cut the grass at the church that I attend as a ministry. I used their equipment and everything. But it was good experience for larger scale jobs. I have a Toro Z380, two Toro push mowers, and a Stihl trimmer and leaf blower. I also have a custom 5x10 utility trailer, and a 2006 Ram 1500 to haul equipment. But, like all new/young entrepreneurs I have a lot to learn, and just by looking on here, I can probably fix that.

    Welcome John, I'm new to the forum but started the business very similar to you. I'm in the Akron Ohio area with clients who coincidentally have family in the Waverly area. My best advice to you is to hustle above all else, and have good communication with your customers. Keep your blades sharp and your deck clean.
