    well, first how many accounts do you have?. What size are they? That will dictate what type and size of mowers you need. Since you are just starting out, keep your expenses as low as possible. If you only have a couple of yards to start, i would buy a regular residential mower, which should last you a couple of seasons, a good line trimmer, blower will round out the basics.
