My coverage area at this time is 20 miles from my home. I have learned that the best advertisement is still word of mouth from your customers to potential customers. At this time i am a solo operation too. This past year i used a part timer, but was only to do 2 or 3 jobs that were a one time mow.
I started out with fliers and since then its been stricly word of mouth. There is just so much business in my area. Lots of upscale communities with really strict and anal HOA's occupied by people with little time to do yardwork. All that equals mucho business. If you have professional equipment and image, you are reliable, and price fairly people here will find you. I'm not some super lawn guy - I just happen to live in a really good area for a lawn business. The 98% humidity in summer helps to.
