The calls are flooding in now, but it's all for spring maintenance and garden work, I've only gotten 6 calls for scheduled maintenance in the last week, and they're all bi-weekly. The craigslist ad I put up has been working great, but it's only bringing in the one-time jobs. I had a similar problem last year, and once I hit July, my business tailed off to three days a week of mowing.

Any thoughts?
