Missing the boat

I'm I missing out on a lot of money because I don't seed, fertilize, aerate, and some of the other thing some of you offer? I don't see anyone in my area doing these things. (It may be like when I bought my mower though, every truck in town had one in it.) I don't know how much call there is for all this. Small town (8000)people. Sound like a lot of money to invest, since I'm only part time for now.

Gary, It looks like you and I are in the same boat. Part time and in the south. I'd say concentrate on just the basics. At least until you get started good and build a customer base. I have a hard time convencing customers to fertilize! Most just want their yard mowed every two weeks.

You don't have to buy an aerator to aerate, rent it! I bought a tow behind this year. But before, I always rented them.

I think that if you want that edge to set yourself apart from the rest it is best to try to become a full service landscape maintenance business. This is something that you can gradually work towards by adding some new services that you offer each year.
