Hello,
I guess I'll start with a bit about myself:
My name is Jon and I am 15 years old.
I started a lawncare company last year after the guy I worked for went out of buisness. Me and another guy have around 15 steady yards.

I found this forum by googling random things.

Anyways, great to be here, hope to learn much about running a lawncare bizz.

You have come to the right place!

15 yards is a great start!

How did you manage to pick up these 15 or so clients?

What kind of equipment are you guys using?

Hi Jon,

Welcome to our forum!

Do you feel you were able to learn much from the previous business you worked with? Why do you feel they went out of business?

Hi Jon,

Welcome to our forum!

Do you feel you were able to learn much from the previous business you worked with? Why do you feel they went out of business?

Thanks for the warm welcome!

In response to the earlier question about equipment; We use a Cub Cadet zero turn (my bro-in-law's), stihl blower and stihl weed-eater.

We got our yards by craigslist, knocking on doors, handing out cards..It took alot of work but it payed off.

I did learn alot. Time. The guy running it joined the local Police Force and no longer had the time to do it.

I did learn alot.

What lessons do you feel stand out from what you learned that you can apply now to your business?
