How did you get the job? We currently do a few, and would like to add more, but have found little information on marketing this.

Well, since I do both ends... I'm a Sexton at my church and "I" mow the grass, and I "contract" to mow the grass at my friend's church.

If the church has a good Sexton (grounds keeper), you won't get the Job, however, if they have a "so-so" Sexton here's how I'd approach the church. You can offer them that the lawn will be cut all at "once, regardless of the weather, each week and look professionally done, instead of "never" being completely mowed at any one time. Then, you can also suggest there won't be any more "labor charges" to fix equipment needs repair or is broken during use. And, it will free up the Sexton for more "church type" work.
Hope this helps,
Pete
