    I personally don't do too well with flyers. I have to use business cards, I tape them to door handles.
    The cards are simple but list most of my services.
    -Mow,Edge,Blow
    -Mulching
    -Flowerbed cleaning
    -Tree/Bush trimming

    I average 1 to 2 calls for evey 200 or so put out, the nice thing is that often times I will get calls when I least expect it. Sometimes months down the road. Just think, many people do their own or already have a lawn service. But some of them will become unhappy and want a new lawn service or may become too busy to do their own lawn. Then they will call you !
    So my advice is to keep trying.

    Most of mine come from referals or people see my work. The majority of the routes are a three or four block areas, 40 to fifty clients. You need to start somewhere to grow.
