Anyone know of a resource to find out how many homes in area use a service?

Anyone know of a resource to find out how many homes in area use a professional lawn maintenance service?

We are targeting 8 neighborhoods with upper-middle class homes (about 9,000 homes) and I want to know how many of these properties have a lawn service without having to do my own surveying.

I would say it is impossible to determine that with any demographic data that is available.
Most data is compiled by census, tax data, shoppers cards, credit card purchase history and those warranty cards that come with products that have 50 questions not related the the product itself.
You could buy a list with the demographics for the neighborhood.
You could then take the demographics of your customers.
See how many are similar and formulate an estimate

I don't think this information is available unless you can access bank records and find out where their money is going to. which would be illegal obviously.

That would be a great idea though to have this information on potential lawn care customers!

I'm sure you could pay someone to do a survey for you? Demographics info can be had from the chamber of commerce or maybe the BBB, or any marketing company.
