    For those who offer maintenace and lawncare which customers do you feel are easiest to add and why? Lawncare or maintenance.?

    This year I think we are going to stop calling on accounts for mowing(since everyone does) and just call them for lawncare applications, and then later let them know after securing the business that we offer maintenace also.

    I find that in my area that picking up mow jobs is the easiest way to go. I am located where most people do not have the time to mow. All adults in the house work, and most travel min. 45min to up to a couple of hours each way. We pick them up for maintainence and then sell them on our other services. Then again every area is different. You'll have to do what works best for you.

    residentials in mid range developments. those homes that people are older coming from big homes (down sizing) and the young ones are leaving Apartments. Because the older ones cant do it and can afford the help and the young ones are less willing to do it and cant spare the time.
    my 2 cents
