Equipment insurance

What are you guys paying on average for insurance coverage on your equipment?
I only have one ZTR and a push mower. Then the blower, string trimmer, edger etc.

I was quoted 3 grand a year.

Sales tax and other stuff

Can anyone tell me if I need to be charging sales tax for providing lawn maintenance in GA?

Clumping grass

Whats the best way to deal with clumping grass, besides cutting more often? Would different blades help? All of the properties I mow are every two weeks.

I like to cut my lawns at 2-2.5"
