If you want to start your own lawn care or landscaping business, you’ll need newer, larger and more powerful equipment than you have for home use. The biggest need is for a sturdy vehicle, preferably a heavy-duty flatbed truck that is one-ton rated. A utility trailer will help you avoid having to hoist heavy equipment onto your truck bed. Even if you have the space to store everything at home, local ordinances may prevent this. So you’ll need storage space, possibly by renting a bay in a self-storage facility. Lawn mowers, trimmers, edgers and sprayers are just some of the equipment you’ll need. And then there are tools: shovels, picks, pruners, a sledgehammer, etc. You should expect to spend $5-6,000 on new tools. However, renting can cut these costs for you initially.
- Lawn care businesses can be extremely profitable and you may already have the equipment to start one.
- A vehicle and a trailer are two of the most important pieces of equipment to have when starting a lawn care business.
- Using your own garage or shed to store tools can save you money when starting your lawn care business.
“A shed kit with pre- cut, easy-to-assemble pieces can be delivered right to your door or you can save money by purchasing plans for around $50 and building it yourself.”
