  • Hi Ken,

    What got you interested in starting your own lawn care business?
    Un-employment is the main reason but I'm hoping it will turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

            Whats Up everybody..?

            It's my first time registering and actively participating in a forum.

            My Names Alex and I'm gathering resources to start my first real landscaping business. I've been working with my dad who works as a Arborist/ Landscaper for about 15 or 13 yrs. Also I've had a few family friends and people like that as clients, but never really "went after" the general public. So I'm well on my way, however i could use some advice and wisdom from some of the dudes in the business. You know stuff like estimate formulas and all things business related, Thanks in advance .

                Hi all......

                Thanks for the welcome.

                I like working outdoors, and i wanted to learn more (focus) about the making money part. I am really trying to get specific with my work, like installing and maintaining herb and vegetable gardens. So as to have repeat customers and also i'll have the whole low impact/green/organic/homegrown thing goin' for me. I'm also thinking of doing hauling and stuff like that while i'm getting off the ground. Got any advice.?

                    Thats a good idea. We have seen others do that when they got started and it worked out well for them.

                    • Hi Albert,

                      Welcome to our forum!

                      What got you to initially start your business?
                      What got me started was the fact that I wanted to work with my son doing something. Most of his life I was always at work for long hours so i couldn't spend alot of time with him. Every since I started cutting grass with him we have built our relationship and have fun while working. It have been one of the greatest thing I could have ever done! We have been cutting for at lest two years and feel it is time to take it to the next level. We need all of the help can get! lol

                        You should make another separate post and tell us a little about what you have been doing to market your business so we can offer some ideas.

                          We have been putting out flyers and talking with people and giving out our business cards.


                          I would also like to know How do you come up with a financial statement for your business plan for a start up business?

                            What are you looking for your financial statement to do for you? Could you simply write down what you are looking to spend on what expenses? Or does it have to be more complex?

                              It has to be more complex more like a projection of income earned for expenses, overhead, and payroll. Whatever I need in order to get a grant or loan.

                              • Well ultimately what are you needing to get started? Could you start with more simple pieces of equipment where you wouldnt need a grant or loan?

                                What's your view on that?
