    I'm trying to think outside of the box about services and projects to recommend to my clients as business starts to slow down. I have the general maintenance like picking up sticks and weeding and other stuff of the sort but I'm starting to run low on ideas of stuff to do when the slow season hits. Any help wouls be much appreciated. Thanks!

    He asked for ideas outside the box. I’d say some of these ideas are just that, outside the box.

    When I was in high school I used to change oil in the autozone parking lot I could make anywhere from $50-80 in an hour I was there. I had an ad on craigslist and got some decent leads there
