    Im up in new york we probably wont be cutting till late april. If you were paying to send out 20,000 flyers when do you think the prime time would be?

    as soon as it starts getting warm and people start go outside to enjoy the nice weather, they look at their yard and think about what needs to be done, and how they hate doing their lawns or making time to do it.

    When I am relying just on the phonebook for calls (in the spring), they always call when we have warm spells. It get cold, the calls stop. Definitely try to time it after the weather warms up.

    I caution against sending them out too early. I have paid $500 per customer because I sent out too early before. I think one should wait till the grass is growing. Literally about the time lawns need to be mowed. Make sure there is a good stretch of warm days when they hit the homes.
