I would get a Contractors lic, Before a Business lic. You need a landscape contractors lic if any of the work you are doing at up to $500, Call your state Lic board to find out more.

Hi Fuzz. Welcome to the forum.

Share more about yourself with us. What size lawn care business are you starting? How old are you? What are your income requirements? What style of lawn care services are you providing?

I have seen businesses start with zero equipment. The operators would offer to mow grass with the customer's own equipment. This certainly isn't the traditional method of getting started but it worked for them.

Let us know more about you and we will help you with an equipment list.
