    I am doing about 50 residential and a couple of small commercial accounts, but I think the big money is in the commercial accounts. Do you guys call them, do they call yall, or do yall knock on doors? I am going to do between 20k and 30k this year, but if I can get some yearly commercial accounts I think it will greatly increase my income. <p>Rick Wallace<br>Lawnworks

    Check in your news paper. Also you can ask for bid spec's on places. Research it!!! Even on the net you can find out about bids.<br>Be very carefull the lowest bid wins in most cases. Try not to bid so you don't make a profit. Good luck!!! Travis AG&G Lawn Maintenance
