Commercial landscaping, how to start?

I am finishing up my 4th year of doing landscape installs, tree removal, and interior and exterior contracting and construction. I would say I have more than enough experience to start doing work with small to medium sized commercial clients I'm talking 5k to 10k, rarely straying into low 20k. I currently carry insurance for truck, trailers, and all my equipment. As well as 1 million per occurrence, 2 million aggregate general liability insurance.

I am curious how to get my foot in the door for doing anything commercially. Be that construction, landscape, tree care, or even just general turf care and maintenance. I work with a contractor who remodels and does new store installs for UPS stores, so I am very comfortable in the commercial environment, and I am also doing landscape designs for 3 other well established companies in my area. So I feel like I have the experience and background to make it happen, I just need some advice in landing that first bid.
