Hi Jose,

Welcome to our forum!

What got you interested in starting your lawn care business? Have you ever run a business before?

This is my first time running my own business. I just moved out here to Arizona from California about 6 months ago. I've got about 8 years experience in the industry. I currently work part time doing landscape maintenance for another company, so about last month I told myself that I can make money for myself instead of making money for someone else. So now I'm working on marketing my business and hoping to grow with in the next year. I dont do the artificial grass.

Have you gotten business cards printed up? Are you letting everyone you know that you are in business and handing them out cards? Also do all your neighbors know you are in business?
