Good luck with it. Sounds like you have the experience needed to succeed. Like the website, what program do you use to create and mail your newsletters?

Hey Pete, I'm just up HWY 83 from you in Hartland, WI. Good luck to this season, the first year is going to be a rough one until things start to settle in. I'm looking to restart my business this year, just like starting up again, hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Pete. Best of luck to you with your new business venture. Not intending to bash the site I think it is very nice (much nicer than mine) but I did notice 2 things you may want to look into.

1. At Jenic Lawn Care we believe in treating all our clients like out next door neighbor.

"our next door neighbor"

2. We are a team of individuals that live in the community. That means we understand the turf and tree and shrub and insect issues of this area.

"the turf, tree, shrub and insect issues of this area"
or
lump it together with something like " we understand the landscape issues you may face in this area"
