For some reason the "Lawn need a cutting" doesn't sound to good. (in my opinion)

I would try with something like: Tired of mowing your grass?

But overall its simple and easy to read.

Best of luck

I'd lose "Lawn need a cuttin?" (everyone's lawn "needs a cuttin") and replace it with something like "Enjoy more free time this year!" or "Avoid the hassles of yard work this year!" In other words, include a benefit to the homeowner in your headline.

Then maybe your subhead could be something like, "Let us help you with reliable lawn care at reasonable rates."

HEY MAN........

I'm NOt trying to be mean, or beat you up.

But this sounds like an Craigslist type of company....

Kind of an in Gereral thing......

an estimate needs to be personal just as personal as a customers needs are, and there home is....

I always cringe a little when I see ads, We cut lawns for 25.00

this makes me think they will come back and rob me when I'm sleeping.....

you need to take sometime and do some research on marketing read some books or check out some other flyers. Or just get some proffesionally done. The other thing is are you licensed and insured? If your not you should focus on becoming legal first. Customers want to feel safe and secure so if your flyer is the first contact, you need to relate that message in the flyer. Everyone can mow a lawn, some can do it well, but very few can create a relationship with the customer and really meet their needs. My self im not in the business of mowing lawns but in the business of customer service.

I am a registered LLC buisness in Nj I do not have a contractor license and as far as I researched do not need one unless doing capital improvements. I quoted out insurance but the quotes were to high for me to afford I'm a owner operator working part time and only targeting my town I'm only looking for 10 to 15 weekly customers and until I get some money rolling in I can't afford to buy insurance. I understand how important it is to me and my cutomers. But after purchasing my equipment trailer and advertisements I'm already at my budget.

I know you guys here probably frown appon that but I have to start some where

Start by working for another lawn/landscape company. And if you want to pick up 10 yard or so, you do NOT need a flyer.... I'll bite my tongue on the insurance part. Save your money on advertisements as well.
