    I do some churches, best accounts I have, and they pay ontime every month. I thought most schools had their own maintenance for the lawn, however the thought did cross my mind if some do hire lco's.

    All of the Pinellas County Schools do mow their own grass (I know, I use to work for the School Board doing that & maintenance). Don't know about Hillsborough County or any of the private schools. How would someone go about bidding for a church??? :confused:

    Hey sweetz. One of my regular customers referred me to my church properties, I think one of them picked up my card inside a bank as well. That has been my best source of advertizing. But anyways, church secretaries are the ones to talk to. Pastors don't like dealing with us dirty landscapers. lol...I bid commercial properties using the labour hrs method. How many hours will it take me. How many acres? Will they need fertilizer, mulch, trees trimmed? I just add it all up. I try to get them to tell me what they were paying before, and then I add a little....lol. Not sure if that helps, but hopefully it did.
    :dizzy:

    Ya kevin, that does help, thanks. Kevin, my name is also Kevin. What part of St. Pete. do you work in? Depending, you may have even seen me driving around in my truck & trailer. You can't really miss me. If you have seen my truck & you know my name, then you know what I am talking about. I pretty much work in St. Pete., Seminole, Gulfport, Pinellas Park & Kenneth City.

    So are most of you guys one man operations?

    With gas prices going up, my guess is that some guys will be getting out of business. Anyone hear of LCOs selling accounts?

    Right now Im gonna take some classes at HCC in the fall and then start the business in the beginning of 09


    man it feels like im a newbie again....
