    How did you pick up that many lawns so quickly vintage? I just started a business after doing it part-time in the summer. So far I have about 13 lawns and definitely looking to pick up more! Any advice?

    Any way you can get your name out there is worth it. I wish I could afford to do more advertising than i do, but then again, you can't afford to NOT advertise lol. Thinking about getting some little "voting signs" to put in yards after I do them, like "This lawn is professionally maintained by PRO CUT LAWN CARE" or something like that.

    Well, don't count your chickens before they hatch. No offense, you have a good start and might have accounts but you can't talk like you have succeeded already. You have not cut a blade of grass yet. I do wish you luck, though.

    But your point about clean, nice, fresh equipment- I agree. People appreciate that and know the difference between scrubby looking and well-maintained trucks/trailers/equipment. It's VERY important.
