Start-up costs

I am considering starting a small lawn business and am currently researching the the average start-up costs and trying to see how everyone prices there services. is there a formula for lawn size? I am looking at getting 2 mowers, one ZTR and one push to fit through fences and I am looking at the Exmark mowers. What size whould you reccomend and maybe what other brands are reasonably priced. I have a enclosed trailer, trimmer, Chainsaw, rakes, shovels and all that good stuff. I guess I am looking for good advice since I am just going to be starting up. Would you reccomend also just doing lawns or other things like pressure cleaning and home maintenance also?

Thanks for any info
