I am intersted in expanding my commercial maintenance contracts. Any suggestions on how to get my foot in the door or find a contact at any of these properties? What do you guys do?<p>----------<br>Charlie<br>Turf Creations, Inc.

If I see a new building being put up I'll ask right away about lawn care. The same with new developments, I'll contact the builder and find out who the officers are on the maintenance commity before the open areas are deeded over to the development. Bob
