ok, i was looking at bikini lawn care company and thats a great i dea, but a way to make more money is to start up a girl version to this... call it hunk lawn care, anything, but the benefit of this is the women can watch topless muscular men mowing their lawns. Housewives definitly get bored during the day and this would be a great entertaining way for you to mow their lawn. We all do mow the lawn topless anyway, but here it is advertized more clearly, and im sure it will attract more customers.

Try it out, let me know the response to this kind of advertizment, hey theres another idea, add it in your advertizement, ### sells.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
That is a very interesting idea. I haven't seen anyone actually do this yet.

LOL Can you imagine if that took off, 'Hunk's Lawn Care.' Then like have a picture on your truck of a guy that looks like Fabio.

Maybe a slogan could be 'When your lawn needs some romance.'

Haha...then we'd be attaching the stereotype of the "pool boy" to ourselves. A few times when we've been shoveling dirt with our shirts off, we've gotten stares/female cat calls. Gotta watch out for those housewives' husbands though...lol

good lord, my first thought was is if you we're line trimming in a speedo & a rock flew up & hit lefty or righty the housewives would get to see a grown man curl up in a ball & cry like a little girl...

Hey for an extra fee you could re-apply all that sun tan lotion you'd need right out front.

or market it to single women..... (this is a bit edgy)
"When you really need a good service..."

funny concept.... not something my wife would like though!

You know this got me to think of a story I had read a while back talking about how the Playgirl magazine got it's start. As far as I remember, the concept was, since Playboy was so successful, then maybe a similar magazine for women would be as equally successful, but ultimately it never achieved the same iconic status as Playboy did.

Women just didn't buy the magazine as much as men bought Playboy.

I wonder if this would be something that just wouldn't translate.

Ultimately though, who knows until it's tried.

yeah much like playgirl...... Many of your clients may end up being ### men. How would ya feel then? "Business is good but my clients have me pulling weeds all the time now?"

again not a concept for me!

As you know we get tons of spam on here and to try and minimize the spam amount, I throw the most common words the spammers use, into the filter so it automatically filters words like #### or ###### or even this word ####. LOL

I kind of think it makes for more fun reading because now I am not sure what you were typing and I have to fill in the blank LOL
