Default Rookie to the site

Good morning. I am new here and it seems like a good place for information. My name is Cole and I am currently in the Marine Corps. I will be retired from the Corps in about 4 1/2 years. I know it's early but I like to prepare quite a ways ahead of time. I am very interested in starting up a Lawn Care business upon retirement. Any information (positive or negative) would be appreciated. I will be moving to a small town with a population of 50,000 with many smaller towns close. I am not looking to get rich but can I at least make a decent living in a town that size?

Thanks,
Cole

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi Cole,

Welcome to our forum!

You certainly will have a lot of reading material here to keep you busy as you investigate your new business further.

I would think you should be able to get something started there and then grow it where you can make the most amount of profits. You never know which services will be the ones that will take off, until you experiment with them.

Each market is different. Many factors play into it.
