If the use of tape is being considered, door knobs or any glass available are good attaching points.
Suggest use of blue colored 'Painter's Tape' less adhesive, easier to peel off.

Tape

I tried masking tape, but found that less adhesiveness means it can fall off, as well, especially in high humidity. Right now I'm using Scotch tape on the door knobs.

First, let me say that Rustic Goat and bruces have given some very good input.

IMO, the use of the words *free* and *time* shouldn’t be used together. I don’t think implying that the customer has time to spend freely is really what you what to say. Instead, perhaps refocus on the value of time and make their time worth something. Give the potential customer something to think about. For instance, Saturday morning could be better spent with family and friends instead of pushing that beat up 21” push mower around the yard.

Maybe –

I definitely like the first line. But not sure about the second one.. Seems like it's cut short or something. Do you guys think I should use, "Relax, allow Fidelity Lawn Service to help maintain your lawn" or "Relax, allow Fidelity Lawn Service to help." or "Relax, allow Fidelity Lawn Service to maintain your lawn."?

I'd bullet the list of services and move them to the left side of the column, easier to read.
Printing on a home printer is likely to end up costing more than taking in a proof and having them printed.

I disagree about the home printer cost

Maybe you can get color copies cheaper Mike, but here it costs almost $1 a page. I'm not sure how many pages my pringer would print off a $40 color cartridge, but I bet it's more than 40, and that's not considering ink refills.

printed, not copied

from a printing business. Depends on how many you're doing of course. Color copies are .79 at Office Depot here.
As to the home printer, depends on how much ink is on each page, if you have graphics I bet you don't get 40 to a refill.....
Not to mention the quality is not even close to a pro job.
Not to mention what happens if they get wet, if you're using an ink jet.
