I've had a landscaping busniess registered officially for about a year now, but all in all life took over and I ended up doing literally one lot clearing job before life did what life does. I'm at a point now where I'd really like to actually make a go at landscaping, but as smart as I am, I'm lacking confidence in this area. I'm educated as an electromechanical engineering technician, and I actually really enjoy landscaping. The problem is I'm not sure what to do or where to start or how. Basically I'd like to start cutting lawns, but my two problems with that are; 1) How do I drum up business? 2) How do I know what I should be charging for the jobs I do, instead of just pulling a random number out of my ass. So for all you professionals out there, Where/how do I start this. I have equipment, riding mower, couple of push mowers, backpack blowers, chainsaws, small tiller, weed eater, Sthil edger, and I think that's about my line of equipment. My truck will be on the road soon, and I have a small open trailer to tow stuff or remove junk etc. What I cannot do right now, due to the fact that I am honestly dirt poor (There's likely dirt worth more than I am right now) is go about getting any kind of loans or anything. I have to work with what I have and start from there, but I feel I do have a good amount of equipment to tackle some of the more intermediate level jobs.
