salt the walkway, blow the snow or brush it off the car, advertise for hanging christmas lighting..remove snow over hang and icicles. Towards the end of winter start selling your spring cleanups, aeration, fertilization, and lawn care.

Could you also sell small buckets of rock salt, customers could keep on their stairs to spread as needed?

Keep us posted on what you decide to go with and how it goes.

You can offer to bank their house up. Shovel or with a snow blower, bank the snow against the customers house on all sides. This will save them $$$ on their heat bill.

Would this really work? I can see it being insulation but the melt off could flood the foundation?

It does help insulate the house there are alot of people up here that do that. some that have water problems will just shovel away from the house when spring thaw starts coming.

That is brilliant. What got you started performing that? What kind of feedback have you gotten from it and do you promote that?

It does work great for extra insulation. If they have water leaking in their home they have bigger problems , like foundation problems. Banking houses here is just as common as roof shoveling.

LOL that would make for some funny marketing material in Florida. Who knows, maybe the humor in it would catch a customer's eye and get them to sign up with you.

Come fix my snowblower son. I need a carb put on one. The drive messed with on another. Fresh gas and oil in six. How much will that cost me? Almost forgot I really need a arm removed from the auger. Clean it up nice with bleach and dont tell anyone.

How about just folding the thumb and 3 fingers into a small fist. Leaving one finger extended, and nailed to your tree?
