Just started my business (lawn care) Friday and already have 1 commercial account and 5 residential's. Looking forward to growing and expanding! I currently only do lawn care, spring and fall clean, and will offer edging, minor landscaping, and minor tree service :)

Word of mouth! I know a lot of people in other businesses that are spreading the word around. I also got asked to bid for a irrigation system already. I personally have installed one, but a friend of my brothers stated he is onboard to help out since he used to do it for a living. What are your thoughts on that cause to be honest i am scared to attempt a big job so soon, but i know at some point it has to happen.

Well i think the big thing to keep in mind is not to underbid.

Chances are, however long you think the job will take, it will probably take at least double that.

What are your thoughts now on how long you are thinking it will take? I'd love to hear your before thoughts and then afterwards what the final amount of time was.
