Looks good. I'm not sure if I like reference to rates, that's a tough call.

I wouldn't want prospective customers to get the idea you were cheap before they call.

Well, you want to do your best to describe your company with the little space that you have.
What is going to make you stand out from all the other ads?
Why will a customer choose to call you instead of John Doe down the street? That's what we have to work on.

Commercial And Residential Lawn Maintenance
(that part is great)
Fully insured (should definitely be included there) but the rest I think we can come up with something better.
Quality oriented and great service basically say the same thing.
The safety conscious line is sorta covered in with the fully insured.

So for that extra space that you have, I think you should tell a little bit about what you do. Strictly mowing? Or do you offer other services? Fetilizing, hedge trimming, mulching, etc...
Then of course your contact information like you have it down below.

Believe me, I'm no expert. Just throwing some ideas around.

I agree, eliminate "great rates" my experiance has been that you get more calls from yellowpage ad than can be handled (different market may have dif results). this will put you in a possition to be more selective of who you service.You'll be working just as hard on a cheap account as you will on a well paying account. Also as said before, define your market with the services you provide then make sure you mention those services in your ad.

Good luck!

Affordable says the same thing. Great almost sounds better. I haven't met one prospective customer that was not concerned with price. That's what they want to know. Your ad will look great in there. How about the other ads near it? Any big color ones?
