Looking for more ways to attract lawn care business in your area and do a good deed at the same time? Consider this lawn care marketing idea from the Gopher Lawn Care Business Forum.
A lot of state budgets are hurting right now due to the current economy. Because of this, the visibility at many road and highway entrance ramps are impeded due to tall grass. If you see a hazardous situation, why not act on it.
Find a safe place to park and mow the grass back down or use your line trimmer. Next, take a picture of you mowing the grass area and send it to the local paper. After you mowed the grass, stick a yard sign in it to attract customers.
Let them know it was you who made the area safer.
Just as a word of caution, though: before mowing such areas, your lawn company may need right-of-way permits depending on the situation and the proper business insurance required by your state. You wouldn’t want damage a car driving by and turn a good will project into a liability. So be safe when you experiment.
