View Full Version : Full Service Accounts for residential

02-15-2005, 09:03 PM
I love full service accounts for residential people, I would much rather do full service accounts for residential then commercial :)

I have about 4 residentials locked on the full service, I'd like to get more customers like that instead of the one time customers!

Lawn services weekly visit
lawn fertilizer 4 times a year
annual aeration
flowerbed maintenance two times a month
re-edge flowerbeds on a weekly visit
shrub fertilization 2 times per year
shrub/hedge trimming 2 - 4 times per yer.

:blob3: ABSOLUTELY. i will only do your home if its full service. lawn, chem, spring-fall cleanup. id rather do 100 full service than 200 lawn maint. the check is much nicer every month. tony

Yes, I'm doing 50/50 residential and commercial accounts.

The guys seem to like mix up residential and commercial, you can spend 8hrs on a commercial site all day doing the same work. I give the guys a break and switch up the scenary for them.

You are correct! The more full service residential accounts you have the better. The customers are great to work with. Anything they want to do for landscaping they call us first to see if we can take care of them. Full service residential's bring them on!

Yes, and you know where you are going and what you have to do..

ie) fert this account today, so you fert all of them today!

Full service accounts are particularly good if you are solo.

Re-edge flower beds every week? I'm assuming you don't actually have to do it each week unless you have an extremely invasive grass. Thanks for the feedback btw.

Nah, if it really requires it then we do..

what do you charge for your spring and fall cleanups, and what all do you do? Thanks
