That is very interesting. It seems like a lot of landscape businesses or hardscape businesses find offering lawn care is a great way to keep the gears of the business turning because you are constantly servicing the same customers over and over again vs trying to go out and find new customers all the time for one time projects.

Are you finding this to be the case?

For those who are focusing only on hardscapes and landscapes, what do you feel is the best way for them to market their business? What should they be doing to attract new customers?

Do you have any pictures of any of the hardscapes you have done in the past? I'd love to see some.
