Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
How big across were the stumps? Did you need a stump grinder?

My guess, $500?

What made you decide to get it? Have you been doing any target marketing now on stump grinding since you got it?

I offer stump grinding as one of my services.
I got tired of renting.
I have this machine, and a mini grinder.
I bought this machine right from the factory
in Wooster Ohio.
I am not sure how to do any target marketing.

A while back, one of our members had a full color postcard made to promote stump grinding. I bet the postcard is still on here to review.

He would then keep on the look out for properties that had stumps. When he found one, he would drop off a stump grinding postcard at the house.

That kind of marketing kept him plenty busy.
