    that is how the best of us started. It is about hard work not about dropping 25k to start.

    good luck and try and target the smaller properties and not take on more than you can handle

    Do you really need an edger? Can't you just use the trimmer as double duty?

    I use the trimmer as double duty. Unless you are having to create a fresh edging job on some yard, the trimmers work well for me. And along with what was said at the top, you'll need that equipment and have the mindset that it takes a little time to expand, but anyone can do it if they have the right attitude. Don't let bad experiences turn you away from this business. Good luck!
