Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Welcome to our forum!

There are a ton of tips on here as well as on my lawn blog on how to get lawn care customers. Do a little searching on here and read some of the blog articles. I bet you will find a lot of information.

As you go, feel free to ask questions.

The best start is to simply put the word out to your family, friends, and neighbors that you are now in business and try to get them to sign up with you. Then ask for referrals to try to get their friends family and neighbors as new customers next.

Hey welcome to our home! Take a look at the discussion in the "Forum" section under the "General Talk" thread. I have a post called "Long Time No See" that has a lot of useful information you may be interested in.
