Hi C&D,

Welcome to our forum!

What got you to start your lawn care business? What parts of it have you found easy to get going so far and which parts have been tougher?

Honestly, ive only been good at three things in my life... Snowplowin, pullin trailers, and mowin grass... and when i put all them together and relized it was really unlikley that i could become a doctor, lol, i found a good friend and am now taking some classes at the local tech school to get a couple landscaping certificates... The easy part is going to be doing the work, the hardest thing is goin out there and finding work, in todays economy, that work aint always there

That is fantastic on getting your first customer.

How did you land them? Flyers? Business Cards? Something else?

I stoped in asked if they had someone that plowed for them, when they said yes instead of just walking out, i asked if they were happy with him an they said no.... (He oversalted and did more ploing then he had to for the extra pay) so i left a buisness card and gave them a rough quote, 4 days later, Yesterday, i stoped back in an talked to the manager, and now i have one for sure commerciall and one for sure resdiential and it hasnt even dipped below 40 yet:D
