For many people who want to start a new business, getting funding is a big issue. That is certainly true when you want to start your own lawn care business. To get your lawn care business going, you need customers, equipment and workers. If you are just starting out, you may be able to do all the work yourself. But if you are going to need the equipment to get to work right away. If you sign a new customer, they may want you to start work that day. So you need the equipment to get the customers.

One approach to getting around the start up costs issue is to use the equipment you already have. If you were a lawn care contractor before you decided to turn your operation into a full time business, you may have a lawn mower, edger and other equipment and a pick up truck so you can begin taking care of your first customer’s needs. If not, you might be able to borrow the equipment from friends or lease it until you get enough customers so you have the cash flow to use to get good equipment.

But many new businesses seek out a small business loan from investors or from a lending institution such as a bank. If you have a solid business idea that you can document in the form of a business plan and the lender sees that your plan to start a lawn care business will most certainly work, then you can get that loan which will fund enough equipment to get started.
