    Hi to all of you out there. I'm turning 15 in April,
    and have have always wanted to start a Lawn Care Company. I have always
    had a fascination with heavy equipment and the outdoors. I know some about this industry, as I have spent the last few years thinking about it. I currently own an Echo PB403-T, SRM210, and a 12 year old Exmark Metro (that we bought at a yard sale for $500). Since I'm a Newbie in this industry, I need you're help. How should I go about obtaining clients, and is there any other stuff I will need/should get?

    Since your limited by the range you can travel (ie: no drivers license) I guess you should try marketing to your local neighbors. Perhaps go door to door and try to sell your service that way or make up a flyer and distribute it to your neighbors.

    Haha where to start...? Get Sean's package, read it, understand it, then come back. Theres so much more to a business than starting that Metro and going to town. Make sure your insured and liscenced. Dave will give me hell for it but I doubt you need to register to pay taxes as long as you stay small and cut a few neighbors.
