    where is a good place to start looking for large accounts: example condos apartments hospitals sub-divisions. IS there a rule of thumb as to how you can get the info on these when they are taking bids if they aer taking bids. Any help would be great

    I dont mean to sound sarcastic but why would you want larger accounts? I am trying to find smaller ones to add to my route. I feel i can make more money at small lawns than biger ones. Maybe its just my area? Say you do a 20 min job and can charge 30 bucks. Its hard to do that type of thing on a larger lawn.

    You MUST go there and introduce yourself. They will tell you if and when they are taking bids. This is straight and to the point. Be prepared to face some NO's, but eventually you will score.

    Yardpro, how do you go about reaching the property managers?
