C.) I use a estimating clipboard (aluminum type) with a note pad. I still have old note pads with all sorts of notes on them. Hand out business cards upon meeting etc.... Take pictures of landscape while there for review later.
D.) I have a full website.
I have that image set just fine just looking at ideas for this upcoming season.

All that is fine and dandy , but personally I think the most important is that the customer trust you and your abilities. They have to have confidence in your and your knowledge and desire to care for their property. If you are able to give that....it goes a long way.
10% of your customers are 90% of the problem.
You may think the grass is GREENER on the other side, but if you take the time to water your own grass it would be just as GREEN.
