Things You'll Need
- Business cards
Get business cards printed with your name, contact number and the type of work for which you are available.
Ask local businesses if you can leave a few cards on their counter, and hand them out near garden centers and do-it-yourself stores. Customers of those types of stores may need your services if they are planning major work.
Place an ad in the classified section of your local paper, with your contact number and rates and information about the type of work that you will perform.
Contact local construction companies and landscapers, providing your rates and availability. Also, contact the suppliers of topsoil and gravel . Build up a relationship with these people so that they think of you when they need someone. If you can build a reputation for a good, reliable service, word of mouth will enhance your chances of picking up contracts.
Register with a website such as careersingear.com and search for contracts on the Internet.
