    Pick up a $13 book called "How To Start A Home Based Landscaping Business" by Owen E. Dell.
    Should prove very helpful. Good luck.

    Starting of right includes making sure you have all the proper licensing and insurance requirements. So check with you local SBA office they can be of much help.
