    I've been busy started contacting customers to see if they want me back or not! I need to find out how much I need to get together on advertising

    Hey guys I saw the thread and thought I would say hello. I mow in the Northland area. I have recently decided to mow full time and am wanting to ask some basic questions.

    When is the best time to start advertising for new customers?

    Is there a time frame for a mowing season that everyone goes by?

    I am not wanting to lowball anyone and cheat them out of their well earned customers so I hope someone can give me a basic pricing structure that is being used in the Northland as well. Do it by the yard or by the minute?

    Is it a good idea to just mow and refer all customers for fertilizing and seeding to a company that does nothing but that?

    What grass seed is everyone using in the Northland?

    Is there anyone out there who just does application that is interested in a referral agreement?

    Any help or suggestions for a new guy will be greatly appreciated.

    Brandon:confused:

    Like I tell everyone else there is not a bad time for advertising. Start now. Do it early and do it often!

    We mow FT from the last weekend in March till the last week in October. Last year I was still cutting lawns every 10 days into November. I try and get about 32 weeks of mowing in.

    We have a $35.00 minimum excluding special circumstances like a duplex or condo.

    We are starting chemical apps next season (2011). I have found most people like the "one stop shop". Just remember that you have to be licensed to put down any sort of weed control or pesticide. As far as seeding goes...do it yourself. Its a great add on and you can make good profits.

    We use a thin fescue blend when we overseed.
