    This goes out to all the solo operations and meduim size outfits. What services do you offer to your customers,(Upsells and regular maintence)? What things do you sub-out? I want to go away from the mow n go atmosphere and get into some full maintence accounts. I know most mow, edge, blow, trim hedges, fertalize(if liscensed). What other services do you provide?
