    get a job with an exisiting company so you can learn what to do, more to it then just cutting grass

    That is a really good idea, is to get a job with another company. Try to find a medium sized company that has a good reputation. I worked for a bigger company for a year and all I did was just get stuck doing the same job over and over and over. I think if you work for a company that just has one or two crews you might get to switch things up a little bit. You will probably mainly mow, but some days you might mulch, spring/fall cleanup, hedges. Just a suggestion.

    I know that alot of ppl probably sign contracts for lawn care to be done on a weekly basis weather it needs it or not but you should never cut the grass if it doesn't need it ,what we do is if the grass doesn't need to be cut is do some weeding or edge the gardens or trim up a couple bushes ( something thats worth about the same amount of $ ) and do not cut the grass too short , cutting the grass longer makes it possible to cut it every week.
