Open your eyes while driving around! I see the ones I want and go in and talk to the person in charge of lawn maint. contracts. Most times they want to talk and other times they are stuck with the guy they have for 2 yrs. Never leave without giving them a business card and always remember to stop by 4 months prior to the other guys contract end. Hint: Always go in looking good. Don't go in after a long day of mowing---You will stink like gas and track grass on the floor. Look em straight in the eye and prove your service to be better than anyone else.

Good luck!
