Does your town even require you to pay any fees? They may not.

As far as the state goes, you shouldn't need a license for mowing.

I am glad I was able to help.

If you decide to go with your name as your business name, you shouldnt have to register a business name then and that could help keep your start up costs to next to nothing.

You can have customers make the checks payable to you and use your current bank account.

Sometimes it really is easier to keep things simple at first. The less complicated you make things, the better your chances are for growth.
