View Full Version : sign in your yard?

Anyone put a sign in their yard? How big? BTW, I wouldn't do this if I were like the guys in the thread "Do You..." LOL.. I'd only do it if my lawn were nice and spiffy (which it is... I think the nicest in the area) . Why is this a good or bad idea? Thanks

If your proud of the way your yard looks, then certainly. Go for it and stick a sign in the front. You might as well let people know who made your lawn look the way it does.

CHECK WITH UR PARENTS, first of course, if its ok with them and u are proud of ur lawn then get a nice PROFESSIONAL looking sign and stick it in there.

Jim at Turf Magazine here.

A sign? The only thing I can say is there's a fellow down the road from me who has a sign for his landscaping service -- and his yard is a mess ... looks worse than mine!

That doesn't inspire much confidence.

In my area the zoning police would be all over me. I think a temp. sing would be ok if you're doing and install.

A local LCO that has signs on his two trucks that he parks at his house. Has a retaining wall project that has been in progress for a year now. The yard is mowed infrequently.

This is not the image I would like to portray to my customers or potential customers if they drove by and saw where I lived.

Another LCO put up a 3'X5' sign in his front yard saying
"Lawncare XXX-XXXX" It is on a 4 lane road with lots of traffic.

Signs are OK but dont leave it out all year long. Now is a good time of course for people looking for a LCO and maybe throughout the year promoting different services, such as aerating in the fall.
