In the process so starting a solo lawn care operation. In the process of becoming an LLC and getting insured. Have a truck, trailer, blower and edger. I'm looking to buy a used commercial mower. Any suggestions on what brand is the most reliable and what I should look for in a used mower? I would love to buy new but I just can't afford it. Also, as far as advertising is concerned I did distribute flyers but havent seen much response with them. I decided not to continue with that strategy b/c I feel people see it as annoying. I will be posting ads in two local papers but should I also direct mail even though its expensive? Just curious as to how many responses people recieved for these methods. Do the "tear-off" flyers in local stores work at all? Everyone I talk to says the market for lawn care & landscape is great and that people they know who've done it have been so successful that they have to turn people down...but the season is getting closer, my phone is still silent and im starting to sweat a bit. Thanks in advance for any advice!
