Hello. New to the site. I am Tom. Friend approached me a few weeks back suggesting we try landscaping. My plan is as follows. I am going to buy a sit down mower, weed whacker, and push mower. Get a business license and advertise. Charge $30 a lawn. And hope for the best. I do not have the money for big equipment for ZTR's and alike. I have a GMC Sonoma, a trailer and a strong back. I am hoping that between my buddy and I we can work our business up and be as quick as the bigger guys(via better equipment). It will take us a wee bit longer than some of the other guys meaning less money per hour but I hope to change that. I have tried a few business with little luck. Never tried a service business. Always selling goods. Do you pro's think it is a good choice or worth it to start as small as I can and have hope to earn enough dough to grow to a company with a good truck and bigger trailer. I am going to start with mowing then as I grow hope to do other things such as fertilizing, gardens, land clearing, etc etc. I see some of you guys saying you started small. Thanks for your advice and sorry for any noob like questions I may have asked.
