new to the biz

I'm starting a lawn service next spring. It will be a solo project the first season. I'll try to land some small commercial accounts, but my accounts will probably be mostly residential. Anyway, I have a few questions. How can I land 50 customers to start out with? I thought about sending 5000 postcards to get a 1% response of 50 new clients. Anybody have any success using this strategy? I'm also trying to get a general idea of how many lawns I can handle on my own and how much I can make per week on my own just starting out. I have a 48" commercial mower and all the other goodies necessary to run a basic mowing service.
