I spent many summers and all of my college life working at golf courses cutting grass. I loved doing this. I worked for sprint till they decided to do cut backs again today and this idea is running strong again. The problem is I dont know where to start.... It appears starting with residential rather than commercial is the way to go. I currently have a Toro self perpelled mower, an edger, blower and weed eater. I know i need to get a ridding mower adventually but this is what i have and I dont want to put a lot of money in start up costs. Will this work or is it a must to have a ridding/commercial mower? Also when yall say your charging $35 and upwards per yard what does that include? Do you charge extra to throw out fertilizer, trim trees/bushes? Also I know I need to get a license but is there anything else legally I need? What do you do as far as winter time? I am in the south and almost everyone lets the turf die off, do you still charge and what do you do if your charging? I know I have thrown all kinds of questions out there I just want to be theral before jumping into this. Any help would be great!
