Hello, as the name says I am from Nebraska and a huge Husker fan. Trying to start up a lawn business part time as I am a full time mechanic during the day. I do have 3 sons 15, 21, and 26 so will have the help I believe if I need it. About 10 years ago I started a fence business part time and grew so fast it outgrew me and I had to put it on the back burner because of lack of time. Also the fence thing was a lot of physical labor for an old man like me. What I am trying to do is start up doing a few small yards with a push mower and grow from there. As/If it grows I will add a rider and other services also. As of right now I am in a town of about 10,000 and hope to pick up about 10 or 15 yards per week for this year and see how it plays out. If things work out I will dive headfirst in over the winter with a gameplan for next year. I'm hoping this becomes a plan "b" for when I want to quit the automotive business. My brother in law and my dad have both done lawns in the past and encourage me to get out and do it. The family name has been in business for over 30 years in some capacity or another so hoping that leads to a few accounts. Thanks for all the good info on this site.
