Well for starters, have you looked at the legal side of it yet. Such as a pest. license? If you don't have that, than there is much to talk about!

Same here. (We get out lawn signs from RND out of Minneapolis).

You need to have a customer base to draw from. Word of mouth might be your best asset. (if your lawns look good)

You better be honest & hard-working too. You better be a quick learner and not make many mistakes -- especially when it comes to chemicals & fertlizers.

Start out small. Keep your route density tight. Gas ain't cheap. Rely on yopu local chemical company (hopefully you have a LESCO nearby).

I have friends in LeRoy, NY.
