I thought it was somewhat creative, but I guess I'm the only one that gets the correlation between cutting lawns and cutting price so I will toss the idea out.

This is going to be on my door hanger, so I am looking for something to entice customers to want to shop with me first, the rest second. It isn't going to be my company slogan.

We put on our shirts: "A Local Team That Cares"

Sounds stupid but people like it.

I personaly don't like eather one of those the make you sound like you are doing not so good work right off the bat and you are just trying to get clients. I know we all are, but it sound like you are just CHEAP and I personaly would not look at you or call you to cut my lawn. if people want a good cut lawn they are willing to pay for it. I can promise you that one. don't low ball prices to get a contract!!

Sounds like someone is bitter because hispanics have taken some of his customers. Maybe if your quality of work met or exceeded your price these sorts of things wouldn't happen to you.

No, that's not the idea at all. To quote your comment about 'doing not so good work' I'm thinking that maybe before you criticize someone's idea you should know how to speak first.

I think I should reiterate the fact that I am looking for useful slogans for an AD that I am putting out, not for my BUSINESS! Gas is falling, are all of your prices going to follow suit this season? If not, then something is wrong.

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
uugghh another lowballer
if these are your best ideas and you are also a lowballer, hmmm goodluck
