ad slogan

Beneath my business name on my Door hangers I want either one of these slogans:
We cut the price on lawn care
We cut the lawn care price

What do you guys think? My starting lawn price is $25, I know some of you guys will say that's too low, but that is not what I am here to discuss. I am merely letting you know that I am going to cut lawns for cheap, and needed to set a basis for these slogans. Let me know

Thanks

The first one sounds better if thats what you like, but I think it sounds despirate (Like your willing to lowball to get the job). How about:

Quality work at a lower price.

Sorry buddy, but neither sound good. You are automatically throwing yourself under the bus by telling your customers you are a 'cheap contractor'. Don't sell yourself short

They are both terrible. Be creative, your slogan is supposed to help sell your company. Do like: "Highest quality, lowest pirce" or "The best for less" There are much better ones out there. Just think about it.
