    I thought about doing them last year, but it was too late, and was going to look to design some for this year. I think it was a good idea, as they keep your business name up all year, and the people keep seeing it. and that can't be a bad thing!

    Hi scott in the soo,

    Here is a quote discussing a calendar from this post that may help give you ideas.

    "It had a little bit of everything we did so that they would think of us year round ... whether it was $10 off snow removal in Jan or $25 off an aeration in May ... they always knew we could do something for them."

    Sounds like a great idea, haven't heard that one yet. Do you use typical scenery pictures, or do you use pictures of your best lawns?
