Well I finally found it. This was the second time I had heard about an All Ohio Thread and this time I just kept looking for it. Now I found it.

Today was a great day. Got out and passed out some flyers today, not as many as I wanted to but oh well. Those suckers are hard to get stuck in door handles.

Should have had doorhangers friday, but UPS screwed it up and I didnt want to waste such a nice day. Probably going out tomorrow too, but I think I will hit the churches and grocery stores. Think that would be a good idea?

Is it necessary to register your name if you use you last name? Such as Elwer Lawn Care, as I plan on using. When my parents went to get their taxes done the lady told them that as long as you use your last name then you don't have to register it. If it makes a difference...I just have 10 lawns this year.

Good morning fellas!!!! Little bit colder than it was yesterday. Gonna be getting my trailer tomorrow hopefully. I think I am gonna do some flyering later today too. The snow, for the most part, is finally gone!!!!

Elwer, you should still register even if it is your last name. And yes you really need to. I had to register my company, and it is my last name. Its all part of the becoming legit

Then be as legit as possible were if something happens THEY come after your BIZ not your HOME

What to charge???

Got a few questions. First, what is involved with a spring clean-up. Second, how do you charge for mulching and how do you figure out how much mulch you need for a job?

I worked all day prepping my eqipment today. I am ready to go (I think).

One more thing. While I was passing out flyers this morning, I made a trip by one of my customers and noticed that he had a few trees cut down and a few large branches cut off several other trees. Whom ever did this left the yard a mess with twigs and branches everywhere. My question is would it be ok to send him an estimate for a spring clean-up to remove the mess? (This is why I was wondering what is involved with a spring clean-up). Last year, all I could get out of this customer was just a basic weekly mowing service.
He has some areas that where at one time mulched and planted but he never did anything with them last year. How could I get him to let me do this for him?

Thanks,
