    When I started, about a month-and-a-half ago. Started with all brand new equipment. Now we sold the old '87 F-150, and just bought a used 2001 F-250 V-8 for 12,000$. We also sold the Hauler, and Trailer and got 8,000$ for them, spent half on the down payment on the truck, and the other 4000$ went to a new trailer. Brand new Roadmaster 77"x 16'. Now we have 57 customers, including 4 commercial account. My friend turned 18 and there are now Legal contracts. We have had no problems yet. Everyone has been great here. Never thought we'd get this far. Still working with my dad on weekends. Only have about 1,500$ saved but heck we're doing great. We bring in about 1,750$ a week depending on what services we do. We get 600$ each and pput the other 550$ into an account for emergencys. Hope everyone else is doing as good as us.

    In a month and a half you got 60 customers. How do you do it. Did you buy out another company because usually early Spring is the big time to pick up clients because thats when the contracts are signed. How much do you get for an avg size lawn and the lawns. What other types of services do you do.

    I have 25 accounts and make the same amount as you. You must be doing 25 square foot lawns or something. Also where did you get all the money for the equipment if you started a month ago. Did your mommy buy it. If you started a month and a half ago and make $1,750 a week (total income so far $10,500and bought that truck trailer and equipment which probably adds up to 15000 then where did you come up with the $4500 when you first started. Yea you got caught.
