    I only have one customers from this particular area (from refer) and just want to add 2 or 3 more. Is it too late to pass out the fliers?

    You should pass them out all year long, there is always new business to get. Depends on what services you offer also, if you can offer more than just mowing, like fertilizer, or leaves cleanup when the fall gets here, pruning, really diversify your much as much as possible and make sure you put it all on your flyer, make sure your flyer is not just black and white, put color into it and really be creative with your logo, people hate to have stuff taped to their mailbox, find another way besides that way, otherwise it will end up in the trash.

    It never hurts to pass out flyers, the more the better whats the worst that could happen. Good Luck with it.

    It depends on what you are putting flyers out for...

    I for one avertise with flyers until mid june for new mowing contracts...

    Then I put out flyers Mid August until October for Fall services...

    I know some companies in my area advertise for new mowing contracts all year long...

    Keep trying...it can't hurt
