I'd love to hear stories about experiences from you guys. I'm sure we've all had ups and downs.

I started already. Sent 6000 flyers out with the local newspaper, and hopeing to get some calls soon

I got a customer who needs a quote for lawn mowing. the garden is very small, it's about 6' x 20'. The only problem is on quarter of the lawn is dead and it seems like something is eating through the lawn, the grass gets thinner towards one corner. I'm assuming this customer will need pesticide and fertilizer, any idea what i should charge for a job like this?

So I guess starting in April was too late! I distributed over 7000 flyers and not a single phone call..

Haven't given up yet, but I'm looking for other means to make income until business starts rolling

Im in GTA, experienced part-time/full-time with maintenance/plowing.

Starting solo for the 2009 spring season! Hoping to work my way north through Richmond Hill/Vaughn

Ideally sub-divisons in the north, townhouses/commercials in the GTA!

Anyone in the same market(s)?
