Lawn Signs

I ordered a few lawn signs for my customer lawns , took a survey of what customer would want one in there lawn , before ordering. Brought over a sign to a customer that wanted it. They got very nasty, saying I am not supporting your business or advertising it on my lawn. Why did they change there mind after a week. Do you find that customers do or do not want lawn signs in there yard.?

I use bigger signs 12"x24" only on irrigation, landscape renovations, or Hardscapes. When I ask for permission the costumer always acts extremely nice about it like if I was doing them a favor. I leave them for about a week

I've never had an issue even with new clients. I make friends, not just customers.
