For a business like landscaping the best thing that you can do is advertise on Craigslist and on BackPage.com

They're both free and they'll drive actual customers to your website.

If you want to do things for SEO purposes then as noted above, find the keywords for your business using google adwords tool (Start with <city you're in> Landscaping - it'll suggest things from there and show you how many searches those terms are getting.)

Once you understand your keywords, you can use them to link back to your site from other sites like social media and social bookmarking sites. Delicious, clipmarks, yahoo buzz, digg, facebook ... start linking to your site from anywhere that will let you put up some HTML (OK, maybe not anywhere ... but almost, keep it relevant)

Every site needs specific SEO strategies, that are decided not only on the basis of the products or the services being offered but also after evaluating the site. You may try various relevant forums, community, newspaper, link building on relevant sites. Also evaluate your keywords.

You can also try Advertise in Free Safelists

A safelist is simply a list of email addresses of people who have joined and then agreed to receive emails from other members of that list.

It’s basically a community of people who advertise to one another. You can literally email thousands of people your ad in seconds, and never have to worry about spam complaints. The drawback is that a bulk of safelist subscribers do not read the emails they receive most of the time.

Having said this, it only takes a few minutes to send an email to tens of thousands of people. Although many will not read your email, a good number will, and its free, so this is definitely a technique we recommend.

Submit articles to sites that would contain the same subject that your site deals in. If you sell car parts write press releases and articles about cars and car parts.

Attach your sites description and services at the end of the article as well as the link.

If many people know what you are about and your existence is shared with many others, you will find a loyal traffic that can provide you with more traffic by recommendation.

If you arouse the curiosity of your customers they would be pushed to help you with your traffic.

If you have enough money then you can buy high PR links, it is the quickest way to get extreme traffic and top the search engine rankings. Also, you can work on the suggestions given by others.

This is bad advice. You should NOT buy links for the sole purpose of increasing pagerank and SE rankings. Google prohibits this practice. If they catch you buying links in order to manipulate pagerank, your site will be banned and you will no longer appear in their search results.
