    I have been thinking this summer about starting up a small landscape company and was wondering what you guys would think about this venture. I work in the family construction business in the summers and I will be a senior in college in the fall. The work seems to be hit and miss, sometimes busy but a lot of downtime. I am looking for something more steady and longer hours to try to fill full days. I have done a number of jobs around in the yard at home including digging and putting in a small fish pond and several brick walks in through the landscape. I have also trenched in downspouts all the way around the house this summer, and put mulch through all the landscapes in the yard.
    Would you guys think it would be profitable for me to try to get a small company going doing this kind of stuff, and maybe shoveling snow in the winter. I have always enjoyed this kind of work but have never really done it as a job, so I didnt know how it would be to start my own little company up doing these kinds of jobs. If there would have to be enough work to keep busy and make something out of it.

    What do you guys think?
