Starting a New Pond Management Business

I am looking for some guidance on how to go about starting my own pond management business for treating ponds for algae and weeds. I have some work experience in the field of pond management but not a lot. Also, I don't how to locate distributors in order to purchase chemicals and other products in bulk, I don't even know where to begin on how to price my services. I haven't purchased any equipment yet but have been looking into some backpack sprayers to start with, I would like to buy a small boat and equip it with a spray rig but not completely sure how to set it up. I also know that my closest competitors are almost 2 hours away, I live in southeastern Ohio and there are a lot of ponds in this area. Any advice or information is greatly appreciated.

 Your plan sounds awesome! Starting a pond management biz can be a blast. From my experience, diving into a field you're interested in is half the battle. Since you've got some know-how, that's a great start! For distributors, local ag supply stores might be helpful. Pricing can be tricky, but research what others charge in your area for a ballpark. Also, I suggest the team take hrdf claimable courses. That will help you in business!
