    I haven't picked up many new accts this spring, and I have no desire to. I have picked up alot of extras my existing customers want done. No haggling, just do it and let me know how much. Glad to see things are looking up for ya Bobby.

    Same here in Ohio. People still needing spring clean ups. Also have several lawn jobs. Decent return on investing in advertising in the Valpak.

    I guess we have picked up 8 or 9 new lawns in the last 2 weeks. Lost one...but no great loss though. Things are lookin good.

    Same here Bobby, a few weeks ago I had a little work to do but over the last week I have been CRAZY. I have spring clean-ups booked for the next 2-3 weeks (weather permitting) with more calls coming in every day.

    I have picked up several customers who just walk up while I am mowing and ask about service. Several existing customers are requesting landscape maintenance and getting a bunch of referrals for applications from existing customers and fellow LCOs. This should be a very profitable year.

    SLOW here... VERY slow.. This is my first year. I am thinking of selling my equipment and forgeting about the business. I have an add in the local newspaper, but the problem is, there is about 60 other Lawncare/Landscaping adds in there as well. Everyone and there mother is doing this around here. I can make more money by selling my equipment. I have no idea how you all are so busy. I have flyers out too. Not as much as I want to, but I just keep sinking money into this business, and getting nothing in return. It is a very depressing time..:( I may give it another week or 2, and then the equipment goes in the paper.. Oh well, another door closes in my face..
