sold my business and relocated to nc

After 6 years in wv 110residential and 16 commercial accounts later I sell my business and move to nc. I moved because it was for th better f my family and personal reasons. Now I am in the process of getting new customers and contracts. I have compared my rates with many here and adjusting accordingly. If anyone has any marketing tips etc please feel free to reply with any suggestions on standing out in the crowd anew getting my name out to new customers. I currently changed my name to Greener Grounds and had t shiits made. 5000 call to action flyers . Truck magnets . Business cards and 50yard signs. Also I am new to the whole centipede Bermuda grass down this way

You know what to do, so do it. You'll be back at 110 customer's before you know it.

Welcome to NC. You will find we have a longer growing season, if Spring ever arrives.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.
