    hi....was asking some advice on how to get some accounts...I've worked as a lead person for another guy but now i want to do this landscaping for my self.so i was wondering on what would work best as far as advertising....i missed the yellow pages...so i thought about door to door flyers and ad's in the news papers.also i was considering talking with the few other landscapers in the area as far as maybe sub contracting to get work here in April.this is gonna be full time for me solo and I'm concerned with work.i have the right equipment just don't have any work setup yet..any suggestions? thanks:confused:

    I knew this guy that went door to door and built a good business. I know another guy that uses Telemarketing and has a really good business too.

    I wouldn't waste money on the Yellow Pages or Newspapers, to me its not worth it.

    Good luck getting started
