Regarding the blower and trimmer, do you have any brand recommendations?

My business is already set up. I just need to register the alternate name I'll be using. Clothing is incidental, as I have a full-time job currently and can pay for that personally.
I really like the Kawasaki backpacks and STIHL handhelds.

I believe based on your $2,000 reserve fund your are way below a safe level to start out.
I would recommend at least 18 months of funds available to take care of your day to day bills excluding you business expense. Starting out in any business from scratch is tough enough and having an actual cushion for 18 months will help a great deal until you get better established.
