    Thinking of starting lawn business

    Ok so here it goes.
    Moving to a new town in a nice subdivision. I am coming from a 3 acre yard and a farm ( plenty of area to play) plus a few family members yards. I enjoy mowing spraying weeds clover crabgrass etc. thinking of starting a lawn care business in my spare time, maybe mowing 4-5 yards, custom areting, spraying, tree trimming custom tilling etc. what or where would I find out a base charge? I know I have to get a commercial spray license for chemicals
    Any ideas or thoughts ?

    I would start by talking to the local commercial turf supply shop and see what the locals are charging. You could also call a few out to give you estimates on your property so you'll have something to judge by. You might find an outfit willing to give you some good info.
