    Now is an excellent time to send out flyers regarding renovating your lawn from any summer lawn damage. Reseeding, power raking, aerating, etc. Also, getting references from your current customer base is a great way to go. Don't wait until spring-sell, sell, sell. payup

    I totally agree that spring is the best time to get new customers, however, fall is the second best time. Tru-Green, Scotts, etc. are now trying to sign up their current customers for 2006. MANY people are not happy with their lawns because of the drought.
