Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Please tell me where to go to get a plow truck for 2500.00. I'll be there tomorrow. It has to be a rusty bucket?..
Steve asked what I'm doing to promote my business!
Well, several things. First good thing I did was buy his book on tips and tricks.
Had some nice business cards made on vista print and everyone gets one I meet with great enthusiasm. Then I have been networking with the business owners I know from my day job. Coolest thing that happened this year: I was doing a lawn renovation with a new client that found my business card somewhere, go figure. I was doing the back yard for about an hour when I noticed out of the corner of my eye a guy standing at his fence watching me. I waved, finished my pass on the verti-cutter, then went over and introduced myself and asked how I could be of help to him. He smiled and said he had been watching me for an hour and that " I'm the real deal ". He further said that he had True Green at his place last year for a lawn renovation and they didn't do one fourth what he saw me do. And, it resulted in no new grass! He wanted an estimate, I gave it to him, and got the job! What a testimony of what just doing things right can do. I will never forget that as long as I am blessed having this business. So, I learned that someone is always watching and nothing is better advertising then doing the job right!

All the "home" plows I have seen don't have power angle so you have to get out every time
I sold my 1996 bronco for $1200 this summer and it ran great 7'5" fisher
I needed the room & money for my new truck

that bronco looks to be in good condition. I wouldve gave you $1200. I could always use extra plow trucks.


I have a sub that uses a wrangler and a 7' poly plow. No one would hire him with that thing. I did because he has a 33" snow blower and his college kid comes as a package deal.

the bronco was a great plow truck (very easy to get everywhere) just during the summer could only pull a trailer.
