    Last year was my first year in the biz and I wanted a taste of everything... so I offered everything. Now I want to trim down my advertised services to just a basic list of services. Mainly:

    Lawn Mowing
    Fertilization Program
    Shrub and Tree Trimming
    Lawn repair & reseeding
    Rotatilling (Already own a tiller)
    Seasonal Cleanups

    Does this seem like a sufficient list for a basic lawn care services company? Or am I missing something? Or should I trim it down even further?

    looks like your equipment list says to me a 2-3 man mowing crew.
    Out of the services listed, my personal fave is the lawn fertilization for pure gross profit. And for lawn maintenance, it seems to me that you'll have to do Spring and Fall Cleanups, Mowing, Edging and Lawn Repair as needed.
    Tree and Shrub Trimming on the bubble, and rototilling would be on the bottom of MY list anyway.
