Hey everyone I have been very busy I have not had much time to come to the form. I have some how gotten myself into new aspect of lawn Care. As alot of you know know about the Parking Lot plus mowing contract I got awhile back. Now the word has spread about the quality of my work I have been getting more calls from other plazas wanting my service`s. I have a hands on cleaning for these parking lots and I am doing much better then the parking lot sweepers they have hired in the past. I do know for a fact that I will not be doing any res, accounts this year. I have set up deal with Clarks Landscaping ( from the forum) he lives near me for him to do them. I will be working on Commercial Only! You guys should try to offer your service for Parking Lot cleaning. BUT remember pick up all paper even if its very small. That makes a difference in the quality of your work and it will be noticed. I have 3 parking lots I am doing now for $1,600 a month per parking lot. My Goal is to get total of 15 by the end of the summer. Not going to be to hard where I live. x $1,600 a month x 15 see what you get. Now you can understand what kinda money there is to be made.

I was wondering what kind of sweeper do you need to have to clean parking lots. I know those trackless machines are nice but I wouldn't have a purpose for something like that. I would probably get the broom for my Kombi system on my trimmer.

To be honest I use one the hand held pickup trash devices. Then I use Little Wonder Blower to blow any other away from the front of the store and then I use back blower also. I use my U V to drive around the parking lot. Its very easy job.

What do you mean by U V

So explain exactly what your doing, are you basically walking around picking up any little piece of trash? Do you do these parking lots Daily or how often? What sets you apart from parking lot sweepers that scrub and vacuum everything up?

Hands on cleaning. They do not get the trash from the lslands They do not get the leaves from the conner of the walk ways so on. They dont pick up cigg butts that litter the flower beds. Its detail work that counts thats what I do. I do them every other day.
