Being a one man operation, and right now only doing this part time what services could I handle doing. I offer mowing, hedge trimming, mulching, flower planting and grass seeding, fall, spring and storm cleanups and weeding.

I know I could handle most of them on my own, but weeding and mulching concern me. If its a house with just normal beds around it that's only about 4 yards at most of mulch, I could handle that, but what if someone wants a job done thats like 10 yards or more of mulch, that is a lot of mulch to move by one person.

Should I just turn these down, or find some quick help to get it done, or even sub it out to someone else?

I would advertise on all eight and they cover almost every category, including oldies, soft hits, hot country, talk, etc. I would get them for free so it's a nobrainer but want I know what kind of response I'll get. Also, should I start advertising this summer in order to catch all the lake cabin owners before they winterize their cabins even though I'm not starting my business till next summer?

Received a call today for hedge trimming and mulching! (hedgemaster, I could use some pointers from your specialty)

The way she described it, it should be a pretty easy straight forward job, she has a row of hedges on one side of her property line and wants them trimmed then mulch put under them. Should only be 1 yard of mulch.
