    I never do flyers. Waste of time and $$$. I knock on the doors of neighbors where I am currently mowing/doing a project. But they have to have a decent yard to begin with...no thin, weedy yards. I have gotten lots of jobs this way.

    I have seen your yard signs around, how's that working for you?

    Wright I am sorry for the smart a$$ comments that some guy's make. You have to realize that this board is full of people who do this part-time and are not solely dependent on it for income so they really don't have as much at stake. With that being said I think you really need to look at the weather as a deciding factor when to send them out. It really is a crap shoot. My opinion the BEST time is late March to early April. Again depending on weather. Good Luck!
