marketing Virginia

I was getting everything ready to start my part time landscape company that I was hoping to build up slowly. As of this week, I was laid off from my top level management job at this areas big landscape build company for bull reasons but I wont get into that. So I guess I will be full time and put my experience and education to work for myself.

I have been in commercial and high end build for years. I am very knowledgable about marketing methods but never directly marketed door to door. When should this be started in Central Virginia because I do understand timing is everything. Anyone out there work in VA that could help me out with this question?

Any interest in working for an established local landscape company instead of going out on your own?
