    I wouldn't advertise having 3,000 weekly's. I think it would turn off customers. I would word it like "We have a great customer base whom we mow on a weekly basis" or something of the sort.

    How many employee's? How far do they travel? Trucks, equipment, tools, etc has got to be a job just to estimate,schedule, bill all the stuff they've got going, but I guess if they've been doing it for 27 yrs, then they know what they're doing.

    And each apartment or condo unit counts as one, it's a numbers and marketing game.( A contract for a 100 unit condo complex counts as 100 customers) I don't believe We would advertise it either.
    But I guess it works for them for now,so more power to them.

    I do not think that they should boast quantity to the outside public. It would turn me off and I would get the sense that they were a mow and fly out thier ASAP lco. Which they probably are and frankly their is not problem with that. Heck, with over 3000 weekly accts they must have done 1 or 2 things right!

    All those addons are also impressive,,,,hell sounds like our buddy qualitylandscaping
