    I hired my first employee and im wondering whats the best way to train him? Let him start mowing or just edge and trim first? Any tips on how to explain thing so its not so hard to understand?:confused:

    before i started my own business, i worked for numerous landscaping companies, the first one started me out trimming-edging-blowing, then he started letting my run mowers around the shop to see how good i was, i have been running equipment since i was 7, born and raised on a farm so i have been around and ran equipment all my life...but i would start out trimming then see how he works from there
