and I also used this one..Does climbing a ladder make you shudder? Then jut call me and I'll clean those gutters....you know, I actually had some dumb fool call me thinking that I NEEDED someone to clean up MY leaves and MY gutters... I told him if he was looking for work, I could keep him more than busy for the rigt price with my equipment... he was not interested.

You can't charge extra because it takes you twice as long to do the job because you have crappy or outmoded equipment.

that's a good one. i've often gotten my foot in the door on a small job that the bigger guys gave a bid on, had the bid accepted and then they blew the small job off. the smaller jobs often lead to bigger jobs. the customer doesn't care if the big guys are too busy. they just want the job done. and often they are willing to pay a premium price for it.

A catch phrase/slogan or two and a few jokes is how the Envy Lawn Service & Landscaping name was "born" for that company.

"Make your lawn the ENVY of the neigborhood"
"Making your lawn the ENVY of the neigborhood"

"Make your lawn & landscape the ENVY of the neighborhood"
"Making your lawn & landscape the ENVY of the neighborhood"

"Make your neighbors green with ENVY"
"Making your neighbors green with ENVY"
