    When i started in commercial landscape and lawncare i tried so hard to get them but. I would just advertise and co. owners will ask you to cut thier home and then before you know it u will get their offices also. I used to call from a list and got nothing would stop in and give the maint. guy/girl a brochure and talk but no luck. 4 years ago i had 100% res. Now my business is made up of 60% commercial and it was all from advertising in the newspaper trucks and yellow pages. I feel you have to have a larger ad in the YP to get calls for some of the larger jobs.

    I've tried the phone calls and walking in. Never got a job from it but did put in alot of bids. And sometimes the person would tell me what they was already paying so I knew I was lower. Didn't matter. I believe it's all in who you know. What I've got has came from exsisting customers. I got one once from somebody that picked up my card somewhere.
