Where to place an ad, what to put in it??

Hey all,
I am just starting out, mailed out my papers to incorporate today.
I have some questions on advertizing.

I believe that I have missed the cutoff for advertizing in the yellow pages this year. So, that leaves me mailers, county paper, larger paper but not as local. Flyers in supermarkets, etc.
Where have you guys that have done any of these seen the best results?
Also, what kind of promotions do you offer for new customers. I am looking to sell mowing, spring and fall cleanups, dethatching, seeding, edging, mulch, stone, well anything I can. I will do most of the mowing and cleanups by myself and maybe a helper. I will also be starting out part time as I have 3 days off during the week and work long days on the weekends. My 2 days during the week that I work are fairly short - out by 3pm.
If I get real landscaping work that I do not know how to do yet I will sub contract it out to my friends business and learn it from him. We have an agreement to not take each others customers, I know we'll see how long he holds up his end. I am not too worried, he has had his customers for years and has not looked for any more in years.
Wish me luck!!
James
