I think this is what worked for me also. I focus on doing a quality job, and over time, word of mouth has brought me more customers. Referrals is always a great way to get new customers because someone has already spoke on your behalf to help "sell" the job.

Strong form of advertising. Also, while doing a yard, I always make a point to wave to neighbors, or start a conversation if they are out. Ive picked up a few other customers this way...and the bonus is less travel. At one point I had 4 residential customers that were all grouped together. Make for less travel time and more cash.
