      So lawyer was no help.. i called an insurance company and got a rate of $715 for a year of 1 million policy. if i just get GL insurance would that be enough or do i have to get other stuff?

      I already have 15 clients in my neighborhood that i do. so if i get 15 more ill be at 30 clients which is where i want to be anyway. and yes thats my plan next year at school im going to get into the vote-ch program which offers landscape maintenance and design. then in college im going to community for the same thing and after 2 years there i want to transfer to get my bachelors in this career. I have been looking at lawn mowers and that 30inch exmark is not exactly what i'm looking at. i used to be push and its fun and all but im not trying to go back down that road. I have a local dealer who said he has toro zero turns mowers ranging from $2600 to $3600 which are 32"-42" riders. or a toro 30" walk behind for $1099. im leaning more to the 32" rider though.

      No I would take some classes in landscaping and business then go full legit whe. You are 18. 15 sounds like a decent amount not being legit.

      So your saying i should try to get clients outside my neighborhood without getting any legal licenses or insurance? is it a big risk of getting caught doing this? and i should just go legal when i turn 18
