    big c. yellow pages has helped some/not like i thought it would. if you saw bouth adds half page in suffolk book $58.00 per month and smithfield/franklin {smaller add . $55.00 month .they said i had a deal last year in suffolk book and they would stick with it. bouth 12 month payment.i was going to have one in verrison but they said lawn and landscape was a high rick business and i would have to pay up front. and they are 3 times the price. i got my best account from a business card in a small pizza place in franklin. i thing flyers would work better then the yellow pages. but this year i am going to put my name everywhere i can.and i have none in smithfield. i had some in gov.point but rich people have trouble paying their bills.

    Have not mowed since before Christmas either. Took a look at a couple of properties today here in Smithfield, and looks like I won't be doing any anytime soon. Kept 14 of my contracts from last year. Just went full time in July '07. Did a lot of mulching and leaf removal, kept me busy till now. Have some small jobs this week. When you planning on fertilizing again, premergent, etc....
