    how many of you are still getting lawn customers? how long into the season should i expect to receive customers? should i keep passing out flyers into the spring and summer?

    Yes sir, people get more ENVIROMENTALLY CHALLENGED as the temps go up. Keep putting out flyers until you do not have time to then you know you got enough work.

    Being that no one has started cutting here yet, we can expect steady calls for another 3 weeks, there are the people that have decided prior to the season that they want service, so they have already called, or will in the next week, and then there are the ones that start out doing it, and decided their equipment is junk and dont want to buy new, so they hire us!! I like their idea:)

    You can expect calls throughout the season for one reason or another.

    Maybe their current lawn service just up and quit, or they are tired of doing their lawn as the heat rises, or maybe they have become ill.

    We have no advertisements out there at this time, and the calls continue to come in.

    callers,the problem ive found is they want to start mowing again themselves when indian summer comes. so they call me next year they get charged as if they are one time customer each time, the premium rate.
