    Hi I am wondering as to which month lawn care contractor's in Michigan start to see a significant increase in calls regarding lawn care estimates. I have distributed door hangers, have an ad in the local paper and a yellow pages ad. Any help would be appreicated Thanks

    taking a shot in the dark here from the NE, but in our area they usually start about the first week of April, unless there is a sudden burst of sunshine and they get that warm fuzzy feeling.

    I have been out working and getting flyers out. Have had alot of calls already. Getting work sold and booked. It's been cold and this snow will probally damper it alittle.

    I started the first week of Feb. Sent out all my quotes and have most of them back. But i dont market lots of accounts i only add on 10-15 new a year. and them are usually referalls. I dont know about the advertising since i dont do any. as far as people just calling probably around April 1st. I have found alot of LC around here send them out the first of the year. Now i think that is way to early. But i follow soon after just incase.
