My friend and I are both attending the University of Kansas and we were thinking of starting a lawn service business in the area. Our plan was to have minimal start up costs and buy 2 push mowers, a trimmer, and a blower which we don't feel should be a problem because the vast majority of lawns in the area are small. Our plan was to go door to door and ask if anyone would like for us to mow that day and then give them a list of our other services and talk to them about possibly contracting with us. We also considered drafting contracts for landlords in the area, many of whom we know do lawn work themselves currently, and there are an abundance of them in our college town. Are we missing any huge flaw in our plan, and can a business this small really compete? Any questions about our plan are welcome if it helps with your understanding of our idea and allows you to provide feedback, thanks a lot for your help.
