I am looking at starting one but truly have no idea if it would help my business or not, nor how much it would cost me really.

A little help here please

Mine may look a bit stupid but it does bring in business.

I have eleive it or not picked up one cutomer from facebook. Family member sho told me she didnt know I was doing lawn care
Well that is a good thing and I guess is an example of the importance of getting the word out about your business. So for that, facebook seemed to do well for you.

That's a good point.

What would you suggest to change this? Not 'like' local competitors or is there a better way to go about it?

Facebook pages are fantastic for SEO. My facebook page is on page two for my 2nd biggest term.

It's worth spending bout $50 on facebook ads just to get some fans above your friends an family. Get about 50 fans and then schedule out posts for about a month to fill up the page. If you fill out the description and everything with your keywords it will rank well

Twitter actually helps as well in the same way. You have to have a decent bit of content though

Did you test that at all? Like maybe put together the facebook page after you put together your website. And then see if the ranking improve?

I have not tested facebook exclusively, but I have tested Facebook, Twitter, and G+ together and noticed significant improvements.

Facebook 100% of the time ranks better than my twitter and G+ pages so therefore I assume it provides the most rank power to my main sites.

Twitter on the other hand, I have been able to use for indexing my site in a short period of time by using high volume hash tags.

You can narrow it down base on your city. If you decide to use FB ads then you must filter or set it up how your ads will shows up. You can filter ads base on city or demographic.
example :
your website/service : lawncare in [city] then you can filter your ads to shows up only for FB members from that [city]. Not only that, as i know, you can filter it base on : Sex, age, household income, hobbies, etc. (cool isn't it?)
If you do filter your ads then you will get "laser targeted" audiences for your ads and cut off your expense.
