    Shouldn't you have your equip before advertising? What do you have?
    Mower(s) used, trimmer, blower, hedge clippers all new. Trailer used if needed. Hand tools new. Do you have any type of license?

    how much money do you have to spend? Depending on how much check out www.landscaperpro.com they have a good deal on a 36" walkbehind, trimmer, backpack blower for $2400.00 and that would get you going pretty good without putting you in the poor house.

    Don't you think this information should have been known when you initially posted this thread? Get a stick edger and go make some money.

    Only if you don't want to hear advise to buy equipment you already own.
