    I have recently have started a small lawn and landscaping business and i have been picking up a few accounts at a time a grand total of 10 biweekly customers. I am currently just doing this on the weekend since i have a full time PCO job. I was just hoping some of you guys can tell me if i need any insurance. I would like to get a few commercial accounts so do i need it for them Any help would be awsome

    Well from what I have experianced is that you will want to have it either for residential or commercial! Some commercial people will take bids and look to see if you have insurance and if you don't away ur bid goes in the trash without another chance! Just a word of advice I heard the average lawsuit is around $250,000 now...I could be wrong but I have heard this from several people! Scary to think about when you don't have insurance!
