Hi to everyone, I just found this website, and want to say it is great! Lots of useful information. I am considering beginning a lawncare business in 2007. Here is some of the equipment I currently own for my own lawn care. I have a 2004 Craftsman 42" riding mower, Homelite weedeater, Stihl blower, Poulan push mower and a Black and Decker hedge trimmer. I have a 02 Chevy 2500HD pickup and a boat trailer I am converting to haul my equipment. My first question is I don't think the riding mower would hold up to the daily use it would require. I am seriously looking at a 2006 Kubota zero turn mower but my funds prevent me from paying cash for the mower. Do you think I could get by without a commercial mower and still do a good job on lawns? I know you all have probably heard this question a million times, but here goes. What's the best way to determine pricing lawncare for this area? I am in Tennessee. I've read alot here in the website but would appreciate anyone willing to help. I have a full time job currently but work a minimum 50 hours a week. I am going to try to start parttime and hope to eventually go fulltime as soon as possible. What is the best way you can suggest for me to get into the business and get as many customers as I can as quickly as I can? I'll stop here with the questions. Thanks in advance for anyones suggestions.
