I'm starting out this year and just kinda gathering information right now. I've got about 5 small lawns that I've been doing on the side since high school (I'm 23 now) for the last few years. I never thought of expanding until I spent 2017 working for a lawn care company doing chemical apps and realized how much I enjoyed the work and how much money there was to be made. Now I'm looking to go legit and see what I can do. A family friend is a financial advisor and has been walking me through things as far as the LLC and insurance go. I won't be going back to the company I mentioned earlier in the spring, but in the one season I spent with them I learned A LOT and have been doing a ton of studying on my own time. I am pretty confident in my turf knowledge. Right now as far as equipment goes I have a 2009 F150 (6.5ft bed), 21 inch Yard Machine, Echo PAS-225SB trimmer, and the Ryobi backpack blower which I absolutely hate. Just bought it cuz its what I could afford at the time. I also have a Billy Goat litter vacuum that I use for leaves, works well for my small yards. I'll be adding a walk behind (most likely 36" but also looking at some in the 40s) and a trailer in the spring. I have at least 4 more customers to meet and give estimates next week when I get back from vacation, one of which has a commercial property that is a few acres and should be a money maker. My leads mostly come from Facebook, Craigslist, and Thumbtack. I've been doing a fair amount of hauling/junk removal to keep busy while the grass is dormant and all of those customers get my card. I'll be starting the whole mailbox/doorstep flyer thing in the next two weeks or so. I'm doing electrical work full time right now and planning on sticking to weekends for my lawns right out of the gate. In a perfect world, I'll pick up enough customers to gradually drop the electrical work down to 4 days a week, then 3, then 2, then...you get the idea. Any tips? Any of my "plan" sound undoable? It all adds up pretty well in my head, but I'd like to hear from some of yall. Im in Annapolis, MD by the way.
