What type of tips are you looking for? How many clients do you have? What equipment are you using? How old are you? With all that information you might be able to get more help.

Bingo. Time and again, this site covers every aspect of starting, operating, marketing, and growing, your business.

Let the main forum and sub-forum search options do the work. Or hit Google and use the operator "site:lawnsite.com search words" for a different approach.

To be honest, you have to give it some more time. Maby tell your clients that you are looking to expand, and give them a deal if they refer someone to you. Are you just doing landscaping or cutting grass also?
