    Hi all, long time visitor, first time poster. I’m looking to start my lawn care journey this year after a few years of contemplating but never pulling the trigger. My question is; if you could go back and start all over again knowing what you know now, would you change anything? Would you have a different business model, buy a different sized mower(s), aim to service different properties than the ones you do now, etc. And if so, what would you do differently and why? Thanks to all who reply. Looking forward to hearing your replies! Also I’ve got a couple shots of my own personal lawn if anyone wants to see some stripes I’m proud of

    I would be more selective on the work I took.

    It easy when my grammar and spelling are usually questionable.

    Only that I would not hire 17,18,19 yr olds again. Pay a good wage and hire older workers. 40 plus yr olds.
