well to start off, I am 23 years old and currently in the testing process for police dept. but I am having severe second thoughts about it. I currently own a condo in san diego and got the financials today for my homeowners association and noticed they pay 75k/ year for the gardeners to mow the lawn and occasionally trim the bushes. Over the 6 years I have lived here I have noticed a steady decline in the landscaping and seem to think I can do a better job. I have started thinking about purchasing equipment and trying to score the account for my condo complex. Don't get me wrong I am not out to undercut the current landscaper but to offer a better service for roughly the same price. It would be great to have a gardener that spoke english, actually cleaned up the grass clippings, cleans up bush trimmings and fallen leaves, and also not to blow crap all over my car. Anyways I have 2 close friends that are interested in forming a business. Between us we have: 2006 Dodge ram 2500 4x4 megacab diesel 2005 Dodge ram 2500 quad cab 4x4 diesel 2 car/ equipment trailers 1 small untility trailer 1 small enclosed trailer. Also have various hand tools, edgers and mowers but nothing commercial. Considering what I already have and that I have about 10k cash to invest what do you reccomend for someone getting started?
