How about a camo shirt too with a really cool Landscape Warrior Logo? Maybe?

I like your business name. I think it would be outstanding if you played up your military background in your advertising and on your website!

Have you considered holiday lighting and decorations?

I'd say buy as much used as possible. Don't spend any more money than you need too.

Have you started up yet or are you in the planning stages?

I am at the very small stage i use my 21 yard machine in the back of my trunk.
i think i am pricing to low 25 a mow and trim for a .17 acre sometimes more but i am working out of a car.
I am going to be getting my truck and trailer at the beginning of next year. but have seen alot of walkbehinds on craigslist how long should they last/hrs.

i see all these logos how would i go about getting one done and what is the cost?

Hi landscape warrior,

Could you send us or post some pictures of your set up? I think it would be very inspiring to others out there thinking of starting a lawn care business?
