I don't do mowing, but I do lawn aeration, dethatching, fertilizers, small landscape, trimming, leaf removal and asphalt maintenance.

Why are you asking?

Why not? It's much more profitable then any other services.
I don't know your area very well, in fact I have no clue where fairfax station is, but I would do some research before in your surroundings, your competition, your market, your supplier. It's good that you are thinking about adding it to you services in a couple years because that gives you plenty of time to do research.

I actually just started doing aspalt sealing this year. I have been doing landscaping/grounds maintenance for over 7 years.. the asphalt sealing worked out well because of already having a good customer base on the grounds maintenance side. If you build a good repor with your customers and they trust you, they will go with all you have to offer.
