Pick up a $13 book called "How To Start A Home Based Landscaping Business" by Owen E. Dell.
Should prove very helpful. Good luck.

Starting of right includes making sure you have all the proper licensing and insurance requirements. So check with you local SBA office they can be of much help.

It should not matter if all your equiptment is paid for, you will have to replace it, do maintenance and repairs, business insurance, and make money for all the other expenses of the business, and mabey a little for yourself.
