    How many of you guys actually do landscaping ( mowing , leaf removal , bush trimming etc ) and also do driveway pavement work like crack sealing , and seal coating ?

    I don't do mowing, but I do lawn aeration, dethatching, fertilizers, small landscape, trimming, leaf removal and asphalt maintenance.

    Why are you asking?

    I am wondering because I am thinking to add that to my services in a few years.

    Why not? It's much more profitable then any other services.
    I don't know your area very well, in fact I have no clue where fairfax station is, but I would do some research before in your surroundings, your competition, your market, your supplier. It's good that you are thinking about adding it to you services in a couple years because that gives you plenty of time to do research.

    I actually just started doing aspalt sealing this year. I have been doing landscaping/grounds maintenance for over 7 years.. the asphalt sealing worked out well because of already having a good customer base on the grounds maintenance side. If you build a good repor with your customers and they trust you, they will go with all you have to offer.
