Okay I started in 2012 season. I started with an old push mower 10+ years old, 01 Dodge Dakota and no trailer. I stared in March. Now it is November and I'll tell you what I have now. 01' GMC Sierra C3, 48 inch Ex mark metro walk behind, 34' Simplicity walk behind, brand new 5x10 trailer, leaf blower, and cheapo weed eater. Thing is I paid cash for all of my equiptment except the truck. I also ended the year with around 10 weekly residential customers, and almost full time work with preservation companies making 20-70 per cut. How did I do for my first year and what do you think I can expect to see next year as far as growth if I am disciplined enough to SELL, SELL,SELL. Also I averaged about 4 landscaping/mulch jobs per month on the side. Please tell me how I did???
