I like your name (we're Irish too), but I'm not gonna pay you to cut my lawn. You might have less trouble getting some residentials to start out, then work up from there. Of course we're a design/build contractor, so that might not make any sense to a maintenance company. There's always tenders in the paper, or cold calls?
