    I love that cage you built for the handhelds, I'll be building one to use for the summer, but not during clean ups. Except I wont be putting a top on it because I don't use a tonneau cover so no need to cover them.

    From someone who moved down here from Akron, best wishes. Some quick tips: mow weekly; if you plan on applying chemicals--get licensed; and the first few years it's advantageous to take on as much work as you can handle. You'll do fine. By the way, that's a sweet tool holder.

    A must disagree with this statement. Some guys don't have the money or accounts to start off with such nice equipment. My advise for beginners is to buy some used equipment and see if they like the business and then move up to bigger and better things. SCRUBS is a poor choice of words

    That is the biggest problem with this business. People get go get cheap equipment and lowball prices because they do not know how to run a business. I can probably count on my two hands the number of legit businesses on here who are run by businessmen and are not just lawn boys. The reason we all come on here bitching every year is because this industry has very few barriers of entry compared to most others.

    I'll never understand why anyone whos business plan is different than yours is wrong. There's more than one way to skin a cat, same goes for starting a business. Just because someone does something differently doesn't mean they're wrong

    agree 100%
