I have been mowing for four year and am now ditching mowing and going after the landscaping. That's my background I usually leave a door hanger with a price written and a printed address, circle a phrase saying "Please send payment to". I may do the same think for landscaping small jobs like aeration, couple yards of dirt or mulch, garden tilling, no real construction or contracts yet. Wonder how most guys are collecting and everyone's input is welcome. Whether it's door hangers, mailed invoices, signed contracts, cash upfront and anything else. Talk about how this works out and what you like, dislike. I'm going to get more hangers my for the new landscaping, need to get some good software like QB, still using GKP. Well, GKP might work ok for a while. I've gone through a ton of small issues to get the landscaping setup, new business plans, business cards, shirts, truck signs etc etc Feels good though, hate mowing.
