Right now Im up in the air, Im looking at alot of areas mainly in the southeast. Even though its supposed to be less humid, I'm not really considering out west (texas,new mexico,arizona,california), it just seems so far away because I've never been there. Plus I've heard about all the water restrictions out there and that wouldnt be good for a landscaping business.
If you are concerned about hot weather than anywhere in the southern half of the nation will be a problem. It is very humid in Florida & Texas and very hot in Arizona & California. For example: Palm Springs has more golf courses than any other city in the U.S. but who wants to work in 110F heat?

Im not sure about the hot weather really. I think I could deal with it because I generally adjust to things pretty well. I guess my main concern is making a good living. I have read about the low wages in florida, but I will own the business not work for somebody. I know the lawn and landscaping biz is very competitive in florida.

When I decide on a general area, I plan on buying an existing business in that area to get a start, so I will not be looking for a job. This is probably a 1 to 2 year plan I am thinking. Give me your thoughts.
Go where the other New Yorkers go, North Carolina, Will you be traveling back and forth to NY? You might want to look for a location close to I-95.

I can see why you want to move......I guess 115 inches of snow would get me moving as well...I prefer the west coast of florida over the east coast for many reasons...but that is just me...I think you should look into the Sarasota area or possibly Tampa...but only you can make that choice...

Remember...the heat comes with the move...the further north you move in florida the closer you come to 3 seasons...sometimes even 4...as with anywhere else...the older the area the more established and stable it will be...have fun looking
