    Well I have been cutting since I was 8. I started my own little business when I turned 16 and could drive. Using my parents and grandparents stuff I was able to buy my own equipment. Now that I am 18 and getting out of Highschool I plan on going into Horticulture. I was wondering what other courses I might should take. Also with mine not being in high school anymore I am planning on starting my business full force while at the same time working for a professional in the process to learn. So how do you usually price your clients? What do you find to be the best mowers for residential customers? Have any tips? I would appreciate all the help I can get cause I plan on doing this the rest of my life. Thanks buches. PEACE!

    Here's a tip, get two sets of cards made up, one for your customers & one for chicks, listing your profession as a Neurosurgeon.

    Come on now Casey... thats now way to treat a new member.

    Hello,

    First off, Welcome to LawnSite.com.

    Get yoru business license and insurance.

    I think learning the ropes by working for a company is a good idea. If you gain a good relationship with your boss you might be able to start your own company at the same time. He might just give you the extra work or not wanted work.

    Use the search funtion of LawnSite.com by following the search link. You can read through past discussions on topics you are looking for.

    Good luck.

    I just wanted to compliment you on your choice of names. Now if it were only true;)

    Good luck with school and business. I use Emark for residential and commercial accounts. There is an Exmark forum here at Lawn Site if you wanted more info on them. Or you can use the search to find info on the many other brand names of equip.
