Well I know a couple of people who make good money doing lawn care and I had a lawn mower, weed eater, and blower so I figured I'd go to work. I've been in business for about a month and a half and I've got 4 clients. I could use a few more. Haha

Hello everyone, I'm very excited, now that I found this site. Loocking forward to meeting Lawn Legends out there striving hard to make their business grow. After loocking through this forum, I believe, I can use the ideas, specialy the Gopher software to improve my business. This is my first year in business. I have 7 years experience in corporate Landscape maitenance and decided its time to go out on my own! I will make this site my new hang out!! ( Lawnogy Lawncare )

Hi Wayne,

Do you have any advice for others who are considering starting their own lawn care business?

Just want to say work hard and take pride in what you do. It will not go unnoticed. Dont br greedy, the money will come. Always act bigger than you are and I mean that in reference to your confidence.

Well I started some flyers Last year and posted an add on the paper last spring. I must say the add really paid off. I got most of my clients through it. I only posted for 28 days in march and whent form 5 to over 20 lawns. Some accounts through word of mouth as well. Now i can say i have 28 lawns. Its amazing how fast the clientell picked up. No matter how much competition there is here in New Jersey, Happy customers remain loyal customers! Next season i will take this company to a whole new level,God willing. I'm looking on putting another add on the paper and 1000 door hangers designed by PLAN-IT GRAPHICS. ETC...OHH! (GOPHER SOFTWARE)EEEEEEHAULLL!!!

That's great !

What do you think you would say would be your marketing hook? Your USP (Unique Sales Proposition)? What would you say makes you stand out from others and is that important to you?

"OUR ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS SECOND TO NONE" Is one of the hooks i like to use on a flyer combined with some other slogans I have around. I think it is important to know how to make a customer feel like your the guy they are looking for. Very important technic to aquire to utilize out on the field. I strongly suggest good comunication skills for anyone starting a business.
