Hello all, a friend of mine and me are interested in getting into the lawn care services. We know someone in another county who has too many contracts and wants someone to take some over for him so he does not loose face. There are three commercial accounts needing mowed twice a month one is a hospital about 650 per month. I am very interested in starting my own business. I really don't have the money to go and buy all of my stuff and am unsure of what steps to take to start the "business end" of it. What are the steps for getting business licenses and such. I figured i could get the business license and get myself a business loan to buy some real good equipt. I don't want to go out there with a res mower and screw it up on my first job. Any input would be helpful Thanks.
