    I was thinking of offering a incentive to get some new customers-
    Refer one customer to me, and after they have received 2 months of weekly or biweekly service you both get one free cut?
    Does that sound right or would a customer have already forwarded potential clients to me?

    I think the incentive needs to be delivered sooner, no one wants to wait a couple of months to be rewarded.

    Maybe 10% or a free mowing off the next bill to them?

    Customers who have been given incentive to call are not good for my business.
