    Hello All,
    I'm just starting in this business. I sold my restaurant and interested in lawn care. I have been plowing comm. for about 10 years now. Thought it would only make sense for summertime. Any suggestions would be greatly apprreciated.

    Do you have any experience in cutting, landscape work? What area are you looking to jump into?

    What do you all recomend for insurance coverage. Any places were a good rate will be.
    k-Car I owned a pizza shop. I've helped out a buddy of mine a few years ago with cutting and retaining walls. I can't think of a better place to work then outside in the summer. Notebook in-hand fire away:gunsfirin

    Yes I think us PA guys can help you out. For your insurance it depends on how many people are working for you or if its just yourself. I know many people that have 100+ accounts and dont have insurance. And do you have any equipment or are you looking to buy? And it also would be helpful to know as much about what you want to do as possible.
