Hello, everyone. Great site I've been reading for a month before I joined. All I know is the lawn business sure has changed the last 20 years. Back when I was in high school when my friends all got jobs slopping food I mowed lawns. Amazing lookin back doing this job for $6 a lawn and some lawns taking an hour+. I had about 10 lawns and for a high schooler in the 80s with 90 cnt gas it was a pretty good living. All I know is I don't know how you guys do it full time! This is HOT WORK! Of course all I was armed with was a 21" cut push mower. OK, enough of a brief bio. Here's my question. I have considered starting out small for awhile. Right now in midseason the temp is around 100 degrees with humidity through the roof. I AM OUT OF SHAPE! I can't get through my lawn hardly. I do tons of weightlifting and have been a dedicated lifter for 21 years, but my cardio stamina sucks. I was considering starting small. I know a guy willing to give me a couple lawns he's wanting to dish off. All I'm armed with is a 21" push mower and a trimmer. Should I go ahead and take on these lawns or should I wait until spring and work on some cardiovascular endurance? I work another full time job so the "time is money" is not an issue. I would not have to rush and these two old ladies that own these lawns are very sweet and easy to work for. My plan would be to save every dollar I make toward bigger, better equipment and take on more work next year. Should I go ahead, take these two lawns and take it slow and easy while doing some running in my free time or should I wait until next year and try a few lawns then? Like I said my plan is to do this debt free and I really don't expect to make any real profit for a couple years as earned money will go to upgrading equipment and get a real work truck w/ trailer. Thanks for any info and input.
