Does your town allow lawn care operators to maintain a certain section of the town grounds in exchange for advertising your company on signs? Have you ever done this? How did it work?

New Jersey Landscape Companies Partner to Help Make Commutes a Little Nicer (http://www.lawnandlandscape.com/news/news.asp?ID=5043) - Augie Palumbo, owner of a landscaping company that has been mowing and maintaining some township medians at no charge, is promising greener grass and colorful flowers along a main road in Hillsborough Township, N.J. this spring.

He added that the township supplies both the signs and mulch free of charge. The mulch comes from brush that residents bring in each year from their yards.

Already, Palumbo has seen results from the sign posted in his maintenance areas and has received several calls from people interested in hiring him for various landscaping projects.

"The township has been very good with dealing with us," Palumbo said. "It's been beneficial in terms of business as well as self-gratification that I've done my part in town to help keep things looking good."
