Very nice! Have you had an issues with it being too big in this area?
No, we have yards ranging from half acre to 3 acres so it is a good fit. We have a 21" honda push mower for the 2 or 3 gated backyards we have and we get a pretty good bit of use out of it on other random yards as well. A 36" or 48" walk behind would probably suit our needs as well (we only have one large yard, around 3 acres), but the 52" makes quick work of small yards.
Have you been keeping good track of your marketing efforts, both those you paid for and those you did not? I am always interested to see what new start ups think was the best use of their resources to gain customers.
I had business cards printed off and mostly just put them on mailboxes in neighborhoods close by and then word of mouth. This has gotten a fair amount as we currently have 15 regular accounts and we have also picked up some one time mowing jobs as well. I was thinking about flyers but they are more expensive so we stuck with business cards.
