Costs associated with running Lawn Care biz?

If I was looking to add lawn care to my company, what are some of the expenses I would look to pay?

Are there lincesing fees? Insurance?

How much does the equipment and materials costs?

Does anyone have an idea of what the margins are?

I'm more interested in what my ongoing costs would be - the initial investment I think I could make. I'm worried about what it costs to run the busines and is it worth doing?

Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!!

By the way, I'm talking about lawn treatment (not mowing)!
