It's different enough that it may get the second look needed to keep a handful of them out of the trash and make you some cash. I wouldn't worry about the "see back.." note or the area code if you only work in the 504 area.

I'm only going to put the one heading on the front of my card and no other info this time. My goal is for the customer to flip the card over to see what on the other side and hopefully the back side special as well as the info will keep a few out of the landfill.

Some people may think the card is from their current service and they won't know until they flip it over. Hopefully then a few people who have been pondering making a change will think my card is divine intervention. Halleluiah saved by Plantscape Solutions. Dig deep and pass the collection plate my way .

I agree with Plantscape both on the "see back" comment (it's unnecessary) as well as on the tree price ($2,500 sounds about right).

I would, however, keep the 504 area code, as we both know that there are a lot of people who use 985 and others...

Card looks good!

Poision Ivy can be found in 37 states and in Canada as well.

I've seen the pesky grape get trunks 6" thick before. The grape is like the Kudzu in that it will cover a tree and shade it to death.
Yep thats the one. Some years they make grapes other years they don't.

I always dislike seeing "Bobat Service" on a list of a companies services. Especially when they have a Cat and not a Bobcat! But thats how people recognize a skidsteer I guess. Its like Kleenex and a tissue. Kleenex is a brand not the actual object itself.
