    I'm trying to get opinions on incorporating a lawn care business. Are most of you incorporated or sole proprietors? I'm just starting out on a part time basis but want to protect my personal property. What about liability insurance? I should probably go to a lawyer but they want big bucks to to talk to you! Any help would be appreciated. Ken R.

    If you want to protect personal stuff you probably should go the LLC route.

    DBA and sole proprietary are quick ways to loose everything in the event of a catastrophe. LLC, s-corp, inc's are better to protect, although you need a good lawyer to set it up, cause the legal firewall is only as good as the foundation.

    I had mine set up for around $1K
