    I have been doing pretty much all residential lawns in my areas for 4 years now. This year and last, I have tried to add on a few commercial accounts, but it seems that the people who I need to talk to are extremely hard to contact. I pretty much always get there voicemail. I have never tried writing a bid without some kind of permission from whoever is in charge, but the idea of it is really starting to look appealing... any thoughts? :confused:

    Stick to residentials, or owner-opperated commercial places. Lot less headaches that way.

    I totally agree with KC grasscutter. All my commercials are private/owner operated. Works great.

    Looks like I am going to stick with that, unfortunately. I may however try to get some of the town maintenance work... any thoughts on that? I heard the town I live in pays very timely and doesn't give to much grief.
