Kicking around the idea to start a lawn care business as a second income to start. 1st child is 3 mo old and would like for the wife to stay at home with him if possible. I have 13 years experience as a golf course superintendent. I have a spray/fert application license as well as the knowledge to maintain turfgrass at 0.100" so 3" homeowner should be no problem. I am thinking of getting used equipment to start. Already have a truck, fert spreader, walk sprayer (small) Thinking of purchasing, used if possible (w/ cash): 12x6 trailer (dump maybe?) zero turn mower (50"?) string trimmer backpack blower Advice on how to proceed as well as most reliable equipment that you would recommend. Pricing for cutting is always a question, the area here has homes in the $300k+ range. Thinking minimum $30 for the smallest lawns. Will be putting together an expense sheet to determine costs.
