Search on here, Read on here.
The topic of marketing has been beaten to death on here.
If you dig around and read you will find plenty of nuggets.

I also suggest when forming your LLC to provide how it is dissolved or exctly how one partner buys out another.
How the pricing is based on a buy out. What each person is responsible for and how compensation will be for each member of the LLC.
THat way five years from now if someone wants out there will be no arguments,

Well be fine as far as our operations agreement goes got that one in the bag were not new to the business just to ownership ive been trolling this site for over 4 years just never joined as im not to computer savy i guess but was looking to see if any local guys would chim in with examples such as what has worked best for them in our area as far as marketing goes. we both worked together at the same company for over 5 years at a local landscaping company and we've known each other for 10+ years and were only in our early 20s im 24 so the partnership side of it isnt a worry for us

So you worked for a landscape company then going off on the side and doing landscape jobs? How did you get those clients? Wouldn't that work for new clients? Or were you just taking them from your employer? Do you have a business plan? Are you a member of your local chamber? What kind of jobs are you equipped to handle?
