Why is your 2 year customer getting quotes elsewhere anyway? That should tell you a lot about what he thinks of you.

maybe he doesn't know he does mulching.

I don't advertise to all my clients all my services. I don't do up selling at all.

if I'm hired to mow I leave it at that and wait for the client to ask about other services.
