    How do you guys go about getting new customers. Also what are the more effective ways to bring in high-end clients rather than lets say a $35 lawn customer

    It takes time to get the higher-end clients to trust your service. They are less likely to respond to door hangers and advertisements than the $35 job and more likely to respond to friends and associates recommending your service. It also helps to maintain a professional image with clean equipment, company shirts, nicely designed materials.

    Good luck!

    Do an outstanding job, be very professional, and work your tail off for the first 5 years. Weed out the PITA customers as you go, and eventually word of mouth will have you so busy, you'll be turning down all but the best customers.
