Advertising Drought Yards Missing Green, Needs Fall Aeration = Revitalize Yard

So I've been trying to think of a good ad to place in the local paper (Rockford Register Star). Advertising something catchy.... If your yard has been effected from the drought, then get Fall Aeration to revitalize your yard.

"Turn Your Brown Yard into Green with Fall Aeration". Or something eye catching/get people thinking.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

My suggestions are here, and whatever other's suggestions are included the the thread.

Try to do it in fall--late summer is better. Tell your customers why they don't want to be involved in spring. See my thread about a spring-seeded lawn from last April.

Anyone else have any catchy phrases they don't mind sharing for an ad?

"Raise your yard from the drought, fall time aeration is here to save you!"

On My Craigslist ad right now...."Turn Your Brown Yard into a Green Yard".

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you can add slice seeding to your aeration ad, you will snag some biz. With the horrendous summer weather we have had, a lot of lawns are going to need some renovation. Go after em.

Hi Groomer,
I like that catchy jingle!!! Something different and it would get noticed in the ad....do you mind if I use it??? It's very cleaver and to the point.

How about this:

"Drought got your Yard Brown,
Have BestRockfordYards turn it around!"
"Aeration Time is Now!"

I think this would look good in the ad section.
