I am 19 years old from the midwest. I want to start a lanw care business next year at this time and I want to start preparing for it now. I will be done with college this year with a 2 year horticulture degree(turfgrass management). Here's a bit of a resume-this summer I will be starting my 5th year on a golf course, I have 1 year experience mowing for a school(including baseball and football fields), and 5 years experience on a tree farm. The question I have is this-I live in a small rural town with a pop. of about 10,000 and it is surrounded by other small towns. I'm wondering if it is worth it to drive to the surrounding towns which are about 15 minutes away to mow? Also what should I charge? I'm thinking about $30-$40 an acre average, $30 minimum. Thanks for the help!
