Take the pic. of the mower out and add more pics. of your work. Most people don't really care about your mowers and stuff, they care about what their property would look like if you serviced it. Other than that looks good. Make sure you co. name is clearly defined in the flyer.

Your name is too close to your heading. You need to space it out a bit. And like someone else said, people could care less to see a pic of your rig. They want to see the quality of your workmanship.
Here are a couple of ours. The one I actually got from someone on here. I just modified it.

Interesting how many flyers and truck advertisement have area codes for phones. Do you work across multple area codes, if not get rid of it because it is too much for people to remember on quick glance. People look for a simple email address these days .

For most of PA you HAVE to dial the area code to complete the call.

Nice work!
Take the picture of the truck/trailer out, and then get rid of the picture of the mower. Actually get rid of all of the pictures, and put a few coupons at the bottom. I think that if you arent putting coupons/specials on the flier then you are making a mistake.
Also, I saw where someone said to take off the area code. DO NOT DO THAT!
You always want your area code to accompany your phone #.

Here's my 2 cents....ditch the different COLORS. It is going to cost you a TON to get printed! Go with either 1 color on WHITE paper or BLACK print on a colored paper. It will be cheaper. Flyers are a NUMBERS GAME. You gotta put out a TON to get a couple of calls, so they have to be AFFORDABLE.

It looks good. I agree, I would take the pic out of the equip and instead insert another pic of your work. I do disagree with putting your company name at the top. I think it clutters your main message, "relax.....put your lawn in our hands". You want to grab their attention and I think that does but I would put your business name at the bottom.

I think you need to go back to the drawing board if you want a professional flyer. Your flyers looks a 16-year old drew it up.... maybe you are 16 though. You need to drop the pics of your equipment... no offense but it isn't impressive. I would add a pic of yourself and some more of your work. I think pics distingish you from the competition. Here is one of my flyers.

Better... it still needs some help though. I would lose the "relax your yard is in our hands." Do you really want to do gutter cleaning? It is a waste of time if you ask me. I would still put a picture of yourself on there. That way they know they are not hiring hobo w/ a push mower.

I would use "lawn maintenance" and "pruning/shearing" instead of hedges... I think people assume edging and trimming comes along w/ the lawn maintenance. Then maybe you could add re-mulch or whatever you do up north to refresh beds. I guess you are not in landscaping or irrigation.

If you are targeting nice yards... you need to make it more professional in my opinion.

I am just starting out this year and will be considering other addons to the buisness in the future.

My 2 cents...change the word "yard" to "lawn" in every ad.

also www.greenview@yahoo.com is not ligit.

as a matter of fact "email me @" is not necessary and kinda unprofessional (in my opinion)

s/b email: greenview@yahoo.com or something like that.


unless your going for the 'Solo' approach in terms of niche. You might want to reconsider things such as Me, My and I. "put you lawn in our hands" conveys the same message.

By changing the word yard to lawn it would give the impression the only thing to be maintenanced would be the yard.That is mostly true but in the future I would like to add other things on.

Jfizzle - We use the door hanger when we are in a neighborhood where we do a bunch of homes and would like to pinpoint one or two. We use the flyer when we want to get into a development or something, so we just hand out a ton of them and hope for a couple bites.

What cities are you planning on sending these out to?

I'd like to look at one in person.
