Hello, I'm new to this site. I have been in the lawn and landscape industry for 10+ years and currently work full time in the hardscape field. I am going through the motions now of starting my own lawncare business part time, until I can expand my client base. I have between 10-15 clients and have basically worked out of the back of my Toyota Tacoma until this year. The clients I do have have small yards, so I'm going to be investing in a trailer, a commercial Honda mower, and a Honda string trimmer to make myself a little more efficient. I sent in the paperwork to register my trade name and will be taking care of the paperwork for my tax obligations soon as well. I want to expand slowly and generate a good client base and I'm pretty excited to be getting the ball rolling and doing things legitimately. I have read a lot of the posts here and everyone who is a veteran owner seems to be very helpful and sincere. Thanks for reading my rant and good luck in 2013!
