Even after you have selected a topic in which you are knowledgeable and passionate, it is still sometimes hard to come up with good blog post ideas. Here are few ideas to get you started.
Own tools & ride are a couple of things that not everyone in the handyman & Lawn Mowing Business business has. If it is an individual seeking work in either profession and are just getting started they may have neither and while they may be cheap the customer may have to supply the tools and give them a ride both to and from their home just to get anything done.
Grass grows better in alkaline soil, so if your soil is too acidic you may find your lawn is not growing well. You need to find out how acidic your soil is before you lime it, this way you’ll know how much lime to use. You can buy kits which test the PH of your lawn care business which will give you an indication of how much lime to use.
The use of pesticides indiscriminately is another common mistake. If you have to use pesticides, then the most important thing to keep in mind is that you should read the label and the instructions for it. Keep in mind that pesticides are poisonous and they can cause harm to humans and animals.
If you are fond of company and/or require a push to get going, do not consider any form of self-employment let alone starting up a starting lawn care business. The same applies if you spend more time procrastinating than actually working. You need to set a schedule. You may even have to lay out other schedules for employees. Furthermore, this type of business sometimes demands you do the job now before the grass grows any higher or the crab grass problem becomes worse.
Buying used lawn equipment is probably the smartest thing that you can do. Many people sell off these items for pennies on the dollar and are still in excellent working condition. Even if they need a bit of work, it can be something that you can do yourself. Learning how to fix your own equipment will save you even more money. Sometimes people will give away their old machines instead of trying to put them in the garbage or sell them.
You may even consider talking with an established business owner who may be willing to expand their services on your nickel. Call it a JV [Joint Venture] or license to operate your business on a shared profits basis under their banner [name recognition]. Something to think about if you’re serious about your own home based business.
