    Besides mowing lawns, what other services do you offer? I'm looking at expanding my business next year. I'm wanting to expand so I'll have something to do on the days I'm not mowing. Any suggestions? I'm considering Power Washing, Leaf Cleanup in the Fall, more Landscaping. How many out there run their business with more services than just mowing? What are the benefits? Thanks!

    Do everything you can. Mow, fert, landscape, trim trees, spring and fall clean ups, its all a revenue stream for you. Hell I just landed a job yesterday to tear a guy's shed down. Its not my cup of tea, but its money.

    gutter cleaning is easy money, just make sure your insurance will cover you if you do something besides mowing/landscaping.

    Hey, if you find yourself overwhelmed with this sort of work, I'm available if you want to sub any out :D

    Seriously, of course, start off by seeing what your mowing customers might need, maybe the hedges are overgrown, maybe hasn't been mulched in 10 years, etc. Then make the suggestion to them. It can keep you busy during a drought.
