Estimate market demand.
Defined Customer Group: Customers who need the lawn mowing services ...view middle of the document...

Rakes, pruners, gloves, leaf and clippings bags, shovels and other hand tools are necessary for a lawn service. For each job you do, you may have to purchase a new hand tool, which will give you the tools necessary to do similar jobs in the future.

Truck and Trailer
A truck to carry your equipment is necessary to starting a lawn service. As you buy more tools and equipment, you may need a trailer to help you carry them around from job to job. Your truck should ideally have a long bed and a bed liner of some type. Lawn service trucks see heavy usage and receive significant amounts of wear and tear.

Chemicals
You should also purchase herbicides, fungicides and other chemicals to help lawns stay healthy. If you’re going to provide organic lawn care, you may need to complete a green training course for lawn care providers.
