Anyone have any luck with this? I know fall is a better time, but does anyone get good business in the spring????

UNLEASH THE BEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Looks like I'll be getting my lazy @$$ off the couch and start advertising. I was hoping the answer would be "NO, not worth it!" so I could keep my equipment locked up till fall. Oh well.

I did fantastic in the fall. Me and all the other 5 million companies driving around. But I hardly ever see any do them or offer them in the spring. My rates are higher than most around here, but from the feedback I got, my quality is by far better. Last year I saw some pretty crappy jobs. I told one of my customers they should really look into getting one. I quoted my price, and she went with someone cheaper. This guy ripped her off good!! He put bad seed down, hardly good plugs...not going to get into all the details but it was bad. At first I felt bad for her....then I couldn't get payment for my cuts. I dropped her and laughed thinking now she'll have an overgrown lawn and a crappy aeration job. Eff her.

Do you have any marketing suggestions to line up such jobs?

I have thirty two scheduled already. I am selling 12 seeding jobs with them. I partnered with a company that needed help. I just bought an aerator.

Spring is as good as fall. Warm season in spring, cool season in fall.
