I'm trying to start a landscaping business to finally get out of my current profession; meat manager, 19 yrs. I'm taking some correspondence courses to learn more about the business, equipment etc., but what about getting clients. I have heard door to door is the best and I've been given the "rock in a bag with my postcard thrown on the front lawn" tactic (although i'm skeptical about some of the legal ramifications of this one), but is there any other advice anyone can offer to better prepare myself and get the business off the ground?? Thanks in advance!!
