This thread is similar to another current thread but... I have pretty much made up my mind to get out of mowing and concentrate on lawn applications and landscape maintenance. Here is a little background... I lost my former company in my divorce settlement. I started that company in 1997 and struggled almost every year. Last year my revenues were a little more than $300,000.00 but because of the divorce and some poor management on my part, my profit margin was mediocre at best. I am starting over again with a new name, new equipment and new focus. In the past my primary focus was on mowing and landscape maintenance for HOA's. This time around I want to focus only on lawn apps. and landscape services for residential without the mowing. I would like to hear from those of you who have done this and share your experience or offer some advice. I would like to also hear from those of you who think I am crazy. My biggest concern is, I do not have enough applications customers to fill a route yet (I am only about 1/4 the way there). I would like to fill in the down time between applications with landscaping until I have enough work to justify going to two crews. Any thoughts?
