    This is my first attempt for a flyer. It may be a little rough.

    it says something to the effect of make it trimmer on the other side. something about that just doesnt sound right.

    Those two do look similar - template maybe?

    I'm not a big fan of exclamation marks!!!!! At least not a bunch of them. But that's my personal taste, and who knows if that means anything to the market at large?

    I'm wondering about 'trimmer' also. I think I get what you're trying to say, but am struggling to come up with something better. What are all the attributes of a lawn you maintain? Greener? More lush? Thick? Full? Clean, neat in appearance? Try to turn that into a new splash line.

    I looked in the dictionary and trimmer (adv) is a word, but it seems just a bit awkward in this case.

    Jeff, "Greener". The grass is GREENER on your side of the fence.

    J, I would remove the snow removal, unless you are expecting another significant accumulation before spring. This could leave room for Apps if you are going to do them, Aeration, Dethaching,....

    just a thought.

    I would NEVER write ANYTHING that even HINTED @ the fact that I might not be there at their disposal ( whether I am or not) EVER,EVER,EVER.....it shows low self esteem.
    :D REMEMBER.......you are THE MAN.:cool:
    You take care of things and remain @ the top every minute of the day. You are cool, calm, and collected under all conditions.
    NEVER show ANYTHING BUT THAT!!!


    :cool: peace:cool:

    Allright jeff im going to be a little rough on ya b/c ii wish someone would have been a little rough with my first flyers many years ago..... First I wouldnt put your Adress on any flyer unless you have an office building, u dont want crazy people driving by your house and u want it to look as professional as possible. Second, dont have them fill anything out!! make it as user friendly as posible, put your # in huge font at the bottom so its very visible. Third, colors are important... u want something thats going to catch the customers eye and intice them to read more. Fourth, Pick a logo and stick it on your ad. last but not least have a printing company help u with the design and print, it will look a lot more professional Heres a pic of the flyer im currently using:) it kind of got distorted when i scaned it... good luck!
