Help getting started

I started this year doing lawn care on the side. I really like it and would like to know how to make it. They have two big lawn care business around here and they seem to get very thing. The hopital here had one lawn care company blow them of for a month and then gave them some crazy number and said he was over worked. They didn't care and asked when he could start. Any advice on how to get in.

If you could please rephrase your post and question...I can't even understand what you are saying.

I was just asking how to get some commercial accounts because even with them being over worked people still want them to do there work. How do I get my foot in the door I have done several bid and got nothing.

Not trying to be a smarta$$, but you should work on your grammatical skills of conversing intelligently. Then get in contact with the decision makers and bid based upon what it takes you to be profitable. Don't worry about what everyone else is/has done.
