Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Gosh, I could fill a page.

There was the time I accidently caught a pile of leaves on fire in a customer's yard. *They piled up over the deck of my mower and made contact with the muffler. *POOF!!!

There was the time I hit a stump with the blades killing the engine. *I loudly yelled a couple of expletives before I looked up to see the client's neighbor and her grandchild standing in the yard watching me.

There was the time I was changing oil in my Snapper walkbehind. *While letting the oil drain I ran inside to grab a drink of water. *Coming outside, I was happy with how quickly my maintenance day was progressing. *I immediately cranked the mower only to realize, about 15 seconds later, I hadn't yet replaced the oil.

Ummm...there was the time my helper forgot to strap down our small push mower to the back of the trailer (tilt trailer, no tailgate). *As I slowed down for the next curve I looked out my window to see the mower passing us on the road.

Lots more...

Start a profitable lawn care business.
