Hello everyone My name is Jason and I am owner of O.M.D. Lawn Care and Snow Removal. I'm new to the business so is there any pointers on getting started ie bidding and contracts also what is the easiest way to get business going. I am from Michigan and there are so many other lawn care company's out there. After being unemployed for some time I'm trying something new.

Thank you everyone Jason

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi Jason,

Welcome to our forum.

There is a ton of information on here and on my lawn care blog about getting lawn care customers. Read as much as you can about it.

The best first steps are to network with people you already know. See if you can get them to sign up for your services. After that, ask them if they can refer you to any of their friends or family. As you do this, you will reach out to more people and word of mouth marketing will start kicking in.

What have you been doing so far to get the word out?
