Thanks Ferris. The cards worked out pretty well for me, I picked up a total of 16 yards from them so far and am getting more from referrals. I did underbid a couple of the lawns by 5 dollars or so just to make sure I had some lawns to cut this year but that is probably for only about 6 of my accounts that I have. Luckily they are full maintenance customers so it's paying off.

Thanks. I've beem fortunate in getting some nice accounts this year. I'd like to think it has a little to do with having a good company appearance and well trained background and knowledge in landscaping.

If you look back at my first or second page you can see the door hangers I put out. I did those along with some that are similiar that I could write the quote right on the back of the card and stick it on the door. I had a better response with those ones.

Small install and mulch job I did this afternoon,my friends company subbed it out to me since he does mainly maintenance and doesn't deal with design work. It's a college rental house and the owner wanted something simple installed, so thats why its not too crazy.
