Looks good. One thing I'm not sure about is the services offered where every other one is in bold. I would have them all either in bold or regular. But otherwise they look really good.

Looks very professional and clean.

Curious-Why are some services bold and white while others are not? I'd pick bold or not and leave it at that.

It almost looks out of balance and by looking at it more, it takes too much away from the non bold font. It almost hides the rest of the services. Now that I keep looking at it, I would make them all bold.

I would offer the discount on any amount. Just adjust your price accordingly.
You might be surprised how many potential customers have no idea how much five or ten yards will be. 10% of them will think that is 10% of of mulch for 5 lawns and 25% of them will think that they would have to buy way more mulch than they need to qualify. Overall very nice. If you hadn't asked for the criticism I would have just said "Looks great".

Great info....haha had too read it twice but totally get what ya saying about five yards. That's funny....im already banking on 95% of these things being thrown right in the trash. I'll be happy with a .005 call back...... Which is fifty on 10,000 and expect maybe half of that. Soo 25 jobs on this marketing campaign is the goal. Another surge is sched in June and sept.

He has a point. Maybe alternate two different, but similar fonts instead.

I think it looks really good, I assume you've already sent it to the printer, but I'd change the services list (like others said). And also, that stock photo won't have the watermark when the flyer is printed will it?

Couple of things on wording:

1. The headline speaks about "Spring Cleanup" but the next line speaks of mulch. Cleanup implies clearing an area of unwanted debris or growth. Mulch is a cover up. "Saving" on cleanup and then turning to "mulch" is misuse of the terms.
2. The next line is mixing terms. It speaks of "area" then continues with a "volume" measure (cubic yards). This use of the language is inconsistent to a typical reader. Yes, we who put down mulch understand "so many yards to cover a bed," but to others, mixing these two measures is confusing.
