    What is a "ballpark" amount of insurance to get when only doing a few yards on the side, no commericial jobs or anything, just wanna cover my butt!
    Also can you get that coverage with most insurance companies??
    And do you have to be a licensed bussiness first to get the coverage??

    I have Erie also, there rates were the best in my area. Its hard to say the amount of coverage with replacement cost and all. 100,000 sounds like a lot but what if a spark from your blower or trimmer catches some leaves on fire and burns down a 200,000 dollar house, Then 100,000 is no where near enuff. I would look into 500,00 - 1,000,000

    Landscape Gardening: includes all services under Lawn Care in addition to designing and remodeling properties, planting and removing shrubbery, trimming hedges and trees, building or repairing of fences, installing walls, ornamental pools such as ponds,foundations, spas,and deck building. No snow removal either.

    Lawn Care- 300/600 350.00Yr 500/1mil 425.00yr

    That 250 is for the year, but speak to your agent to be sure that your equipment is covered for theft or damage.
