Hello, Im just beginning my business this year in Bedford. I have been doing a lot of research on all aspects of the business. I have several unanswered questions though. I registered my business name with the secretary of state. Do I need to get a state license? I'm pretty sure I don't need one for my town. Also. I was wondering what the going rate was for basic lawn care in NH. Mow, trim, and blow deal. any help on this would be much appreciated.

Bedford area... LOTS of $ to be made there! Im looking to find some work down that area myself.
All i ever did was register my name. Of course don't forget insurance!
The going rate would depend on your overhead/expenses. Some people do it cheaper because they can afford to. Most smaller lawns i have seen go for 35-50 depending on your costs and or the company. Also some people run a "mow, blow, and go" business. Others invest a few extra minutes and include some weeding, raking over mulch, dead heading flowers, etc. I know some that include this as part of the mow job and thats why they charge a few extra bucks. Also some charge extra for bagging and removal of grass clippings.
Welcome to the business though! It is very rewarding in many ways. It just takes a little time to figure out how it all runs and the proper amount to charge a person so you aren't over or under charging.

ya all i will have in contractor gen liability. I drop it in winter because i wont use it. Not to many places carry used equipment (and most places i know if it is used you dont want it). I am however checking with a landscape company on 2 48" Scags they had for sale last fall. They run, but definetly have been used. $600 each with the bagger last i knew. Im only looking for one so if they have both i will let you know.
Also just starting out you wont need to much really. Last year i only used a 36" walk behind. It did the job and worked well for getting into fenced yards. I just plan on picking up the 48" and a velke/sulky for some of the larger jobs. I just cant afford a zero turn plus i like the versatility of 2 walk behinds for now. And anything larger than that i'll pass on or work with a local smaller landscape company and such.
