This industry is so saturated no home owner is signing a contract. If you don't like one guys terms go up to your local main road and just flag another LCO down, that simple. Now commercial on the other hand...

My door hangers are going out the second week of March. Also, as for invoicing, I am using a program.called invoices2go that allows me to print, get a signature and email the invoice right from my truck from my Android. It's simple and easy.

Hello everyone.... Brad with Third Day Landscape, LLC..... been a troll on this site but thought I would introduce myself. Mainly a Landscape Design, Implementation and Maintenance company, but have been offering lawn service now for about 4 years. Enjoy it tremendously.

Really enjoying this spat of warmer weather. Been outside pulling out equipment and making sure things are ready for the season.

How is everyone? Would like to know who is who on this site. Maybe we all can introduce ourselves.....?

Good luck this season in whatever you do!
