Hello people, thanks for letting me be part of the forum. I'm really a woodworker by trade. But, cause of the construction industry being how it is I'm out of a JOB . So I Started a Lawn Care Business. MAYBE it will lead to better pastures, MAYBE!!! There's no way it can get worst!! Anywho, I like Woodsmithing, Lawnsmithing and Fishing. I'm here to learn from you guys. Everyone says, " More heads, more thinking power"! My business name? Don't want to say yet 'till I get it Copy Righted or what ever. I have a lot of questions, so guys please bare with me. THANKS!!

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
do the lawn mowing to get money, but upsell everyone on your woodowrking skills. I have seen things as simple a flower box about 10 feet long, 2 feet wide made out of some kind of wood I dont know what, sell for over $1000. Now that was to a restuarant downtown, but good woodworking skills can make a ton of money

Well, I do all kinds of woodworking. From Hi-end cabinetry to cheap kitchen cabs, from Framing to trimming. I can frame homes or do the finishing trim; like Crown molding and door trim. Fine furniture or kitchen cabinets. So if it's made of wood I can do it! But like I said; " The construction business been down hill " and going" I'm out a job". So hopefully this lawn industry is better. I need to pay my bills.

Thanks friend.Yeah I'm from Florida. Love the weather, it's about 70 degrees right now. It helps a little, but it's dry season and a lot of folks don't want to water the lawn so it's slow right now.

Thanks for the info Steve. Yeah I'm on it. But I need to make time, that I don't have. I also work as a driver for Dominos Pizza at night. So I do the lawn thing early and the driving at night.

one very easy up sale is power washing, staining & repairing decks. Many People don't want to spend money right now but if it can save them big money down the road they will.
