Red face Industry/Market trends...help?

I'm getting into some gory details with my business plan and am stuck. I'm having trouble finding industry and market trends (unless I can pay for it). I've got the local market info. figured out - looking for a bit of national or regional info to pimp my plan out - as I may try to use it for raising funds. I'm in my 2nd year full time, and scraping by, so I'd like to know if anyone has a source for this type of info for free. Anywhere on this site?

Thanks...

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
A few years back we helped a bunch of lawn care business owners create their business plans. It was called the business plan Head Start program.

If you do a search for that on here you will come up with a bunch of discussions on it.

Here is one example of a business plan created for Kustom Kare Landscape Service.

Let me know if that helps.

Also, what would you like to accomplish with your business plan and fund raising? How do you feel that will all work for you?
