Here is a brief version of what I am going to do. Attempt to pick up as many maintenance many accounts as possible within a 10 mile radius of shop. The key is to get in with lawn mowing, then have customers sign up for full maintenance..ie fert/pest apps, mulch, shrubs, pruning etc. The key is labor intensive repeat business, where highly skilled labor is not as necessary as with "custom" projects. The goal is to be the only contractor that sets foot on the property...allowing for us to be kept busy. Winters are slow but advertise for junk removal, basement cleanouts, firewood, limb pruning etc. Eventually displace myself from the job. What do you think I should do different?
