    I am a contractor whose main income has always been derived from servicing commercial accounts. Codominiums are our specialty. (They are ultra "picky" but we can charge quite a lot more for our services, seeing as how they want Cadillac service.) My quandry is, I would like to establish a roster of residential customers as well, realizing that this would require several years to build into a substantial list. I would love some suggestions about flyers (What to put on them) and other ways to get the attention of Mr. and Mrs. Urban Lawn.

    You gotta hit'em over the head like a hammer with everything you do. You would be wouldn't believe how many times I've herd "I didn't know you did that" Put it all on there from A-Z.
