I am just starting out in this industry. I was just wanting to know if any of you guys have any tips for anyone getting into this business. Also i was thinking of buying a 36" exmark metro hp. any thoughts thanks
Read and educate yourself on here and other sites. Like Glan said, do a better job than the other guy. Do quality work not quantity.Dont Lo-Ball. charge the going rate for your area.If some people on here give you a hard time, dont listen to them. listen to the ones that help you. Thats what i do.you people know who you are. LOL
Love what you do, and let it show. You're only as good as the last lawn you serviced. Learn, learn, learn, and did I mention learn? This is an industry that constantly changes, but stays the same. The hardest part for me is all the bookwork/paperwork. Make sure you know how to safely operate all equipment as well as buy necessary safety equipment. Make as many contacts as you can in your area, and pay close attention to the advice you get on lawnsite.
Reality check is a plus. You will not make it overnight. Most get in thinking that they will immediately make good money. It isn't that easy. It takes time, hard work, and common sense to make this work. Use info here to get you a good base knowledge. Just don't expect to much your first few years.
yes i realize that i will not make it over night. right now i am 22 with few bills and responsibilities. i am going to do this part time, maybe 5 accounts. then if it is something that i really want to do i will pursue. thanks for the info though.
