    I recently purchased a lawn care business this past May. My Equipment is great, consisting of:

    52 in. Toro Z Master
    48 in. Toro Z Master
    2- Echo Straight Shaft Trimmers
    Echo Backpack blower
    Echo Hedge Trimmers
    Echo Shredder/Vac
    Stihl Edger
    Solo 3gal. Backpack sprayer
    18 ft. Enclosed Trailer
    2004 F-150 Crew Cab

    Also may customer base is bringing in approx $1500 a month on a regular basis. The problem is I would like to expand and take on more customers but I'm not exactly sure on the best way of advertising, especially with the season being over half way through. I would really like to get customers on a year-round contract. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I advertise at different times of the year. When i feel like i could use more clients, i go and put out flyers, and if i don't want anymore, then i stop advertising for awhile. Good Luck, as daveintoledo said "anytime of the year is a good time to advertise"
