    I will not call myself a landscaper! I might do the odd landscaper type of job, plant a tree, roll out 2 rolls of sod in a bare spot, add a wheel barrow load of mulch or rock etc etc etc.

    I am a landscape maintenance technician.
    I can't even boast of being a full service maint company.
    I'm not licensed for spraying, or tree removal or back flow testings.
    I'm not going to claim that I'm doing those things either.


    What young osmann is learning here is really valuable stuff that may sting a little hearing it but its coming from those of us that have gone this way before and got the hard knocks to prove it.

    Yep. I know i took off the top line and the full service part. I was over doing it. I thank you guys for pointing that out for me. I just wantedt to do a little big of everything that there is to do. In the future i will add more services once i get good at the ones i do now. Thanks

    should the top service say: Lawn Mowing Services, or Lawn Maintenance?

    Unless that address is for a location away from your home I'd take it off.
    Put serving _________,___________, and ___________ instead.
    I think I saw some where in this thread that you cover multiple towns.

    I know when you send your customers a bill your address will be on that, but I don't want
    my home address floating around for every one to see that doesn't need it.

    Should i just get a PO Box? I think they run around 30.00.

    Also should it say lawn mowing services or lawn maintenance?
