    Ok guys, before I know I came out stupid. Now I am for REAL. I want to start a Lawn Bizz. I have a name already(SP Lawncare). I have the following equipment:

    2 21" Mowers 1. 6.5HP MTD and 1. 6HP Craftsmen.
    I also use my grandfathers 4015B Dixon ZTR 42" 15.5HP around his house when I have 3 acconts( I can post pic of it if you don't believe me..
    1 Troybuilt Weedwacker( brand new, my dad bought last week).
    1 Craftsmen Blower(1 year old)


    Thats it on equipment. I am looking to get around 10-15 accounts, just for the rest of the summer. I have all the flyers ready. Im just going to do locally around my house and my grandfathers. Are there anyother things I should worry about? I am really serious about this so don't post anything stupid please.

    Other things to worry about-

    -Business License
    -Insurance
    -Taxes

    For the most part, if you start small you will learn as you go.
