                Welcome to our forum! It's very nice of you helping out your sons with their business. Do you or have you ever run a business? Are you able to teach them a lot about the potential pitfalls so they can avoid problems?

                    Do you have any words of advise for the new lawn care operators just starting up? Any pitfalls they should avoid?

                      The animated banner looks awesome. I'd love to have one.
                      I started my business about one year ago. Picked up a used mower from the flea market along with some other used equipment (blower, weed eater, etc.) I started by going door to door and handing out business cards. If they weren't there I would just leave one on the door.
                      Within a couple of days I had people calling and business was starting to stack up. I now have new equipment, and work full time. I have commercial accounts as well as residential.
                      To this day, I haven't spent a dime on advertising (except for the business cards=Vistaprint.com-500 for 4.95) I guess that is a good sign that the lawn care business is a healthy one to be in!

                      Thanks, Brandon

                          Quote[/b] (Team Gopher @ June 10 2007,6:09)]Hi Brandon,

                          Welcome to our forum! Do you have any advise for the new lawn care startup?

                          What are your next big plans?
                          Well, I found that the majority of my customers I get aren't happy with their current company. If you do a good job and show up when you say you will be there, then you will do just fine.
                          As far as big plans, I am working on getting my applicators license so I can spray without worrying about getting hit with a $1,000 fine! In my area, we have 2 agg. cops that drive around and watch landscapers/gardeners to try and catch them spraying.
                          I am taking Horticulture classes at the local college (water gardening and plant Ident.)
                          I am also finishing up on my larger trailer, 6x12, since I have outgrown the one I am currently using. It served me great for a year or so and now it is time to pass it off to someone else.
                          Well that is what I have been up to and I look forward to answering any questions. Thanks for all great resources this site offers. I think it was a great find.
                          BTW- I downloaded the Gopher software trial and think it is totally great. I will be purchasing it as soon as I can.
                          Thanks, Brandon

                            Thanks Brandon!

                            Can you post some pictures of your equipment and trailer setup?

                            I'd love to see them!

                              Fresh in the lawn industry and would love a banner, need as much help as possible. I like to do lawn work so I am trying to make a business out of it. small at first (of course) and work my way up to commercial jobs with contracts. I have an s-10 truck it's small but it gets the job done. and I have a lot of used equipment that my dad had, He is a crew cheif for a big time lawn company. It is good to know that I have advice when I need it, But if you guys could help with some that would be great! Moonlight Entreprenureship is hard work. Thanks again guys.
