    as most of u know, i am now a full time gypsy, i mean, lawn boy. tell u what i did a few weeks back. sent letters to all my customers thanking them for thier loyalty and patronage. as a result of this, we are now expanding our business, if you have any friends, relatives, or nieghbors who may be interested in service, please feel free to refer us. also, remember, the upcoming months are a great time to take care of projects at your property, such as, aerating, seeding, la di da......is this begging? ill tell u what, i got a sh*tload of work as the result of this. planting trees and shrubbery, mulch, stonework, aerating, and like 6 people on my snow removal list. plus, a neighbor, and an aunt for new clients. and that was in august! sometimes, people dont know they need this or that, they dont know u do it, or they are afraid to ask. never assume. you want to make money? plant ideas!

    You bet Bobby, Let my customers know that my slow season is the time to get things done. I.E. trimming back over grown trees, bushes and doing the beds. Not only does this get me thought the winter but it saves them a few bucks. Believe me when they look out in the spring and everything has to be done tomorrow the price goes way up, as I have 30 other procrastinators wanting the same thing

    printing is for punks! only steers and queers work in printshops, and in 20 yrs there, i have never seen a set of horns...

    I always tell customers about which time of the year is good for some stuff compared to others. I also only offer certain services during some months compared to others
