    Landscape Installations!!!!! by far #1 for me. Also aerating, power raking, slit seeding, overseeding and fertilizing are also decent $ makers.

    You could always try a market survey. This could be something as simple as speaking with your customers explaining you are expanding your business and wanted their input. Just a suggestion.
