Early Bird Lawn Service is on a distinguished road
Smile New To The Forum

Hello, My name Adrian J. Brown. I recently started a lawn business this season(Early Bird Lawn Service). I joined this forum in search of sound counsel about the ins and outs of this particular endeavor. I'm pretty sure some of you guys have been in the lawn business for quite a while, so I'm looking forward to meeting some awesome people and powerful thinkers, because after all two or more always operate more efficient than one.

The only problem I see with your name is my customers hate mowing to early in the morning.

Well Steve as of right now my marketing tools consist of flyers, business cards, and I have a plan with my current patrons, which states if they refer me to 3 new customers and those customers become a part of my customer base, the 3 refers lead to a free lawn servicing, which i consider a form of master mind marketing. I'm also in the process of getting logos for my truck.

Yes, the one's that I feel in worth my while, but more of my customer's neighbors mow their own lawns or say they presently have a lawn guy already.
