Guys, I'm new to the site, and just beginning to explore the landscaping/lawncare/plowing business. Looking to get some ideas as far as how much money can be made in this business. I've decided that I probably need to work for somebody first, but I'm just wondering what type of living can be made in this business. I live in an area with 25,000 people (10 mile radius). There's a good amount of commercial property around. Trying to do some market research as to how much the companies around my area are making. Is it $25,000-$50,000- or more? There is a company in the area that has the local supermarket account, and a few more. I heard he pulls in anywhere from 20 to 30 grand for that particular account, I'm assuming that is for lawn/snow, because that seems like alot for a single one (lawn/snow). The guy seems to be living a pretty good life, but as I just started looking into it, I'm wondering how much you can make in this industry. Any insight will help, like I said I'm looking thinking of talking to local guys to learn the business, but wondering if it makes sense to get into the industry with the economy/outlook/etc.
