Flyers work great. But what works even better is word of mouth. Once you have been established for a couple years, referrals will be your main source of new clients. Good luck cjm

lots of lowballing but I really didn't mean to :laugh:

Ain't that the truth. I was looking at some of my prices from last year and after looking at this years costs like fuel, insurance, taxes, etc...I would need to mow about 250 lawns a week. Granted the residental lawns I targeted are small (4000 square feet and smaller) it just wasn't worth it.
