To get more maintenance jobs you might offer a guarantee to your install customers if they sign a maintenance agreement. I find that people who pay to have someone install plants flowers etc. like having someone else maintain it. A lot of my maintenance customers signed with me because I guaranteed plant replacement if something died. Ive never had to replace a plant. My "agreement" or contract also states that I am not liable for freeze, irrigation damages, drought and so on.

Landscape installs are highly profitable and sought after, however they are not steady enough and that is exactly why lawn mowing is crucial to our bottom line.
