Hi my name is Nick and im 21, i have been thinking about starting a lawn care business for about 2 years and never could convince my self on doing it. This upcoming spring i will start my business. I live in buffalo ny and i am surrounded by many houses in the proximity, and many duplexes in the city that are rented. I currently have a 2004 Ford explorer and over the next months leading into the spring season i will in vest in a 4x8 utility trailer a mower (not sure what kind) a gas trimer, and a backpack blower. I have a plan for advertising in the local town papers and on craigslist, and also door flyers for over 5000 doors in the area. I plan to invest about 1500-2000 for equipment and advertising. I really need to find more infor on business licensing, insurance, and taxes. Also i have two best friends willing to help me full time.
