I dont think of it as 10 accounts. we are mostly landscaping not lawn care. We are buisy just about every day from the end of march to the end of october. We make around 250-700$ a day when were working doing landscaping and mulching. Lawn care is sort of a filler.

oh OK, I thought you were more of a maintenance company, so none of your "landscape" accounts want maintenance too?? Just wondering, most people I know like to keep the same company.

we try our best to get our customers maintenance as well but some people have had their company's for a while and others like to do it themselves. This also was our first year in business and were still figuring things out. Some people also
had contracts signed. We are going to receive more of our landscape peoples maintenance this year due to expired contracts and they as you said would like to have all one company. Some of our best customers will have us do everything and then skimp out on us with snow removal? i don't know why and i never ask, but the same lady referred us to her friend and her friend wants us to cut her lawn and do some landscape renovations. Almost 100% of our growth is by word of mouth and it seems like a never ending cycle. Our customers are always pleased with our work. The only time they have been disappointed is when we told this one lady that she should go with the partially died mulch but she wanted the "organic or wood and **** mix". In a month it was very white and faded. later on in the year i will post pics of our work.

I dont know if you think im kidding or not. but there is still snow on the ground here and it will be cold until the end of march. i just found out about lawn site so i havent really taken pictures of my work, but when the season starts here ill make a post that is sort of a diary of my work. But yes me and my partner actually do make this about every day from mon-thur. the only down side is we have to split it =(.
