I am looking to take over my fathers existing residential landscape company. With 2 employees doing most of the maintenance and the owner doing extras, such as repairs etc...

I would like to go through the customers and "weed out" the less profitable ones, and focus on new accounts in a smaller target market.

For this i know i will need to focus on marketing in these areas, and also refine the bidding process. Its a lot of work, but with planning and organization i think its possible. Attached is a logo i was using, but I am also in search for something more attractive.
