    Hi,

    I am from Eastern Suffolk County , Long Island NY. I am looking to expand into other new towns. Currently I work Wading River - Port Jeff. If you are from LI can tell me the best towns in Eastern Suffolk County where I might get the most customers if I advertise door to door with fliers.

    If I knew where they were I would be putting my flyers there instead of telling you.

    What I do know is that it's hard to add customers after Memorial Day. Though I put out flyers yesterday.

    So keep on working an ever longer radius from your home. It's a hit and miss process.

    Don't you think that every landscaper knows where all the rich people live? There are no hidden pockets of rich people waiting for you to come a long.

    And because they are rich is no gaurantee that they will not be cheap bastards and bitches expecting to pay you as if you were their employee rather then as a business owner.

    Higher end homes = more work, more expectations, more issues, less profit.
