Thats a really good looking door hanger. Ive always thought about putting a picture of myself on mine but i dont think people give a crap. One thing i would take out is "all commercial equipment" they just dont care. And if you do spring/fall cleanups and mulch put that on there too. oh yeah you should offer edging too

Door hanger and flyer design is a crap shoot. Trying to anticipate the public's reaction is tricky and fickle.

If I was physically incapable of mowing my lawn I just might call you. You look clean cut, probably not a smoker etc. People do discriminate on appearances. I'd rather see a picture of the owner of the Co. vs. a stock worthless photo of lawn or landscape. If you operated in my area I would seriously consider having you work for me as sub. I personally am very picky about who I hire for subcontractors or employees.


Not sure if I like the Best prices in town but that is waaaay better than lowest prices.


All the best

oh ya, i forgot to put edging. My reasoning behind the "all commercial equipment" is that im a teenager people dont usually take teens seriously but i want to be taken seriously. Some people think that since im a teenager that i dont have equipment and they think that im wanting to use theirs haha. so thats sort of why i put that there. by seeing the flyer do you get the impression that im a teen? just curious. but thanks. keep feeding.

Yes i did for sure. It pretty obvious. I am still a teen myslef. I started when i was 16 but i learned quick that people dont give a crap that your a teen they just want a professional lawn care company. Part of the business when starting out is "looking and sounding profesisional". so make it sound like your a known company. They dont think you have the expierence so theyll jusr hire a big company.
