    If you don't have any photos of your own work, I would use a stock image like this one.


    Also like others have said check spelling.

    Ill break it down a lil bit for you. Dont take this the wrong way. You need to stick to just mowing at 14. With the way you are designing that card it is portraying a company that your not. You have a pic of a hardscape walkway that im pretty sure you wouldnt be able to install like that or price properly. Ive been doing landscaping for 10+ years and mowing for 15+ yrs. i wouldnt try to sell a job, i couldnt do. So dont advertise work that is out of your league or comfort zone. No matter what at the end of the day you are still 14 and by law atent allowed to perform alot of work. Enjoy being a kid. Alot of us wish we would have.

    stick to simply mowing, work for a company doing hardscapes and learn the ways to do them correctly IMO. good luck

    You don't have any pics of the hardscapes you have done? Even if what you say is true and you do all the designing, installing, etc yourself and the business is just in your Dad's name, how many people are going to take your seriously and trust you with anymore than $250 of work? Like Kajun, I think you will have much more feedback with smaller jobs like mowing.
