    This will be my first shot at trying to get some residential accounts, is it a bad ide to give them a price on the door hanger??

    Yup. I'd much rather take the time to look the property over real good, look at the back yard, etc. I'd also rather let my salesmanship sell the job rather than my price. I will never be able to compete based on price. There are guys in my area passing out flyers that say $20 and $25 for any lawn in the neighborhood and I refuse to give a blanket price like that. They include everything for that low price, cutting, edging, trimming and blowing off the surfaces.

    Depends if you are looking for volume cuts or full service detail accounts

    I have done it in the past and will do it this year again. We have many areas where its cookie cutter homes ands lots where you can go in and blanket the whole place with the same price . I have had great luck with it also.
