    I think your website looks pretty good so far. You might want to go back and double check the grammar and punctuation on the Services page.

    "Byerley's Lawn care serves Boring , Gresham , Troutdale and nearby cities with everything you need for your yard and garden. From scheduled lawn maintenance and yard services. We currently care for private yards up to 1 acre in size as well as a number of commercial property"

    This contains a sentence fragment. It also needs a period. Not trying to be a jerk, but it kind of jumps off the page.

    Been mowing a few yards the last few weeks. Still don't have very many accounts yet but I will get there. Thinking about mailing out some post cards or hang them doors.

    I really like the logo on the black shirts, and the cards look good as well. Good luck with your business.

    Looks like you're doing really good and have a good plan of action (from a branding standpoint). Are you getting any clients?

    I have a couple now. But not enough I am having only been passing out post cards on doors of houses. I am thinking about having some mailed out but not sure how well that will work

    So I have started using Lawn pro billing for my estimates and invoices really like it so far. I am having trouble getting customers. Am passing out flyers and am about to mail some out not sure what else to do.

    Try adverting on craigslist, angieslist and groupon.com. With craigslist, you will need to make lots of ads and 'renew' each one daily.
