    To run my business what kinds of insurance do I need? The work that I will be doing is Mowing, Maintanence, Snow Plowing and also alittle bit of installs.
    And how much, all together, what will this run me?

    Thanks Lynch Lanscaping

    $500 for the year via Nationwide auto insurance. Just covers "lawn care" I'm sure landscaping and snowplowing will be more.

    I'm paying $700 through Columbia Mutual for the Mowing - landscaping included. Can't go off the ground for tree trimming. No Snow. 1 Mill. policy.

    Insurance requirements vary from state to state. When you get your business license, ask those folks there these same questions.
    They should be able to answer everything except how much it will cost.

    If you already have your license, likely you can call to ask the questions.
