Smile Hey everybody!

My name is Travis and I have been working for a good friend of mine on his lawn crew. Now I want to start my own and really don't have a clue how...and now it's fall time and I am diving into leaf removal and gutter cleanup. I have no clue what to charge or how to get new customers. I have had a rough year and a half with my divorce and different things. So I dont have alot of start up money. I figured it was good to start in the fall because a rake and some big bags won't break the bank. I would appreciate any help and advice on getting started. I am really glad I found this site. Look forward to your responses!

Hi Travis!

Welcome to our forum!

Were you aware of what your friend was charging for jobs when you worked with him?

Did he perform gutter cleaning and leaf removal services?
