Well I have been pretty busy. Couple pics of 2 trees I took down. I Don't usually do tree work, but these were pretty small and they werent really near anything, so I figured I could tackle them myself:

One more of the tree job and some stripes and the mowing rig. I have 2 really huge jobs coming up this week/next week so I will be sure to get some pics of those. Also picked up 3 new pretty high-end mowing accounts and did those for the first time today. Also just did a bunch of repairs to the truck to get it to pass inspection : all 4 ball joints, brakes, 2 tires and a new starter.

the door hangers worked out great! I ordered like 2,000 of them and passed out about half of that. I got them from NextDayFlyers.com. I did the design myself and they were $188 shipped to my door. Very impressed with them, they are on a very thick cardstock also. As far as results, I got quite a few calls, I got 4 lawn contracts, a tree job (which also turned into a future plowing contract), a couple de-thatching jobs (which I didnt even advertise on there), 3 or 4 landscape jobs and of course you get the usual tire kickers and price shoppers calling. I think a lot of it depends on the area you pass them out in too, I did about 300 in one neighborhood and got no calls and did 200 in another and got 15 calls. So a lot of it is knowing your area and where you can earn new business.

I did look into your product, and I am happy with the product that we went with. It works good for what I do and as I said before, I'm very happy with the outcome of it. Thanks.

Hey looks good man. Love your truck. It really looks "new" for its age. Those wheels look real good on it.
