Marty did the publicity of it help you attract more customers or did you promote that you had one in any way in your marketing?

Truth be told, Steve, no I didn't run with it. But the lady that won did. She used the old "lady network". IE phone gabbing, card cubs and any thing old ladies do that they get together and gossip. I figure I picked up 5-7 lawns. I still get referrals via her, and she has long since moved to a retirement apartment.
Word of mouth is your best marketing

Something like that. Then mention you have won it twice.
Hate to say it Steve, but if I used that as the lawn on any flyer around here in up state NY. I'd never get any work. Must be great to live where he does.

and i will say that if i live there in up state NY i will be sitting down and a fat very fat pile of money, my friend try to do some landscape in deserts and keep grasses, real green, and healthy, for 7 months of whether temperatures over 98 to 110 degrees. whit no rain for over 40 to 57 days, last year i only had 3 clients, right now im over 30 clients all sign in too a year round contract. im just saying

i am going into my second year in business, i am very small operation(me and my truck) and i am enjoying every single job, tear, sweat, complication, failure, reward, drama, complement. etc

its finally raining here in south Texas after 20 to 27 days whit out rain ill post some pics of my the lawns after the sun hits that grass that i take care not just mow.

here is some examples of how the regular spring can start here in south texas, what will you do to kill all this weeds.

WARNING: no quimicals where use in killing this weeds.
