Hi Guys! I just found this forum today and I'm really glad I did. I'm trying to start a Lawn Care company but I'm not sure If I should wait until the winter is over and grass start to grow again. Down here in Florida during the winter most of the companies mow every two weeks and I'm not sure if it is a good time of the year to start a company. With Christmas around the corner and Thanksgiving Day I'm not sure how many people are looking for new accounts. My fiancée has a cleaning company and about 10 of her accounts would will to give me their business but it is still not enough. I would need about 15 more just to try to keep the same salary I'm making now (which is a joke BTW . So my question is how hard to find new accounts in Florida during the "winter" season. I thought that I would give 10$ off for a month for existing accounts referring to new ones and also advertising in the local paper. Also would like to get your expert opinion about a "Package" I put together. I use to work for a lawn care company about 5 years ago and I do have some exp. in equipment and I like Stihl and SCAG , here is the list: Please help me decide if I overshoot my list of equipment or I need to get stronger tools, my ultimate plan is to have about 45-50 accounts. Blower: STIHL BR380D Chain Saw: STIHL MS170 Edger: STIHL FS75 H Trimmer: STIHL FS 90K Trimmer: FS 55RC-E Trailer: 5X8 WOOD FLOOR UTILITY WITH EQUIPMENT RACK Mower: SCAG FREEDOM Z 48" WITH KAWI 19HP ENGINE I appreciate your help in making my decisions easier!
