    I am considering starting a lawn care business and was hoping some of the professionals could give me some advice. I am a very hard working self starter who has the Time and money to invest. I also already know a little about personal business from my current rental property business (7 houses).

    What type of Mowers should I start with?

    What Type of accounts should I go after at first? I assume I need to build some experience before going after the big ones.

    What' the best method for attracting customers?

    Do I need a Partner or at least a helper?

    How much start of capital should I be prepared to spend.

    Any advice from the pros that could help me avoid the typical startup mistakes would be greatly appreciated.
