Still thinking of using EPA statistics on the back.

Any other ideas?

Money paid to a designer might be money well spent.

Is this your first year trying green?

Going green is too expensive... Most homeowners could careless. they just want there lawn cut for a decent rate. It will be very hard for you to be efficient... just my .02

Equipment wise, I think it all depends on the square footage. It could actually work out well. Customer wise, I agree. I don't think 99.9% care how its cut.

What is your equipment list? just curious on what you are using. I heard of CORE battery operated trimmers and what not for commercial use. Never tired on but my dealer said they are awesome.

If 99% of your clients don't care what there lawn looks like you must be doing it dirt cheap. I have never had a client that did not want the best lawn on the block....

They don't care what you use to cut it is what he's saying.

People really don't. And you can't charge more either

I like the 2nd one best, but with the fonts from the 3rd. Not too sure about the purple text though.

This. They just don't want to do it themselves.

I HATE mowing my own lawn.
