I know that gear is important, but before we get started I thought I would mention that I have multiple courses for new landscapers, and the information inside those courses has already helped thousands of my students get their businesses off the ground, and increase profits.

A solid pair of shoes or boots are a must when you work in this industry. To handle the daily abuse I put on my shoes, I wear Kujo shoes. They are comfortable and last a long time, plus these guys have great customer service and will let you exchange shoes until you get the perfect fit.

SureCan Gas Cans
Every landscaper needs plenty of gas to run our tools. In a normal gas can, your hired help is sure to spill a bit of gas on your equipment before they fill it up. With SureCan gas cans, you and your crew can easily fill up gas tanks without having to bend over or spilling that expensive gas. This works especially well if you pair it with an Equipment Defender SureCan trailer rack. Plus, if you use code "Keith10" at checkout, you can save an extra 10%!Use Code Keith10 on SureCanUSA.com

If part of your business includes washing windows, you absolutely need the "Keith Kit" that I made with Detroit Sponge.

These tools are top tier and the windows you do are not going to have any streaks and your clients are going to love it.

Every landscaper has rakes, blowers, trimmers, and plenty of other equipment that needs to be secured while in transit. I personally like to use Equipment Defender racks. They have racks for hand tools, D-handle tools, trimmers, line spools, water coolers, gas cans, hedge trimmers, handheld blowers, backpack blowers, backpack foggers/misters, and chainsaws! Long story short, if you need a rack for a piece of equipment, Equipment Defender has it.

Now that you have all the gear you need, you may need a little help running the business. After you start pulling in some cash, finances can get a little confusing.
