I am brand new here. I operate a top dressing business. I want to start a high volume core aeration business. Any links or info on how to set that up would be appreciated.

What type of soil are you working with typically around your area?
If you have heavy clay and / or rocky soil, those greens aerators will probably be torn up before lunchtime.
They're meant for sandy loams that are created on most golf courses.

I've been aerating the clay soil here for over a decade. I want to expand. I want to get a large volume of jobs in a tight geografic area. I plan on going door to door. Does anyone have a better way?

One very successful aerator around here named their aeration company very distinct name- 'PLUGGR' with a distinguishable logo showing cores of soil on a lush lawn.
I know he runs his company in a very tight affluent area here in the area, focusing on capitalizing on referrals in those gold-mine subdivisions.
I also see him have direct mailings included in the mail too, as part of a coupon package that's sent out by Val-Pac.
Val-Pac can target specific zip codes for you.
(I happen to live in that same zip code, and I get his coupons too)

I know the same guy has a landscape lighting and an irrigation company, under a differerent name though.
