    I gave Jeff a high definition graffic of a lawn and told him my biz name and a little about how I want to present my biz image and he came up with the logo and truck wrap.

    WOW!!! that truck looks amazing. I really like how he did those graphics, and that gate looks a TON better than the short one that you had.

    One word...


    Awesome!!

    Looks fantastic, and the back bi-fold gate has to be much better than the old design. When I take the ride up there this fall I may just tell them to give me the same bed as what you got.

    Thanks very much for the measurement!

    lawnjockey,

    How many accounts are you up to?
    And how was the feedback from that postcard design?

    What post card design? Oh that . That is my door hanger. I just stick them in the weather strip of a door or lightly role it to fit in the handle. I passed out 8000 in Feb15th to March 31 and got 85 clients roughly. So there is the other answer y'all were looking for. I have roughly 85 clients. 20 are one acre lots. This is my first year full time. Just moved to Texas in January and started making money in March. I am not a big company or anything. I have two guys that work with me. I struggle to keep busy. Just billed out 66k for the year. I tell my wife we are broke and buy more crap for the Lawn Jockey.

    I spend alot of money on things like decals. While the money is still coming in I just bought next years uniforms for 9 forcasted employees and I am buying 60k door hangers that won't go out until Feb 25th ish. I am thinking I will be broke at that time of the year. Putting out 20K door hangers in the next couple of weeks to juice the winter mowing months with Free Perenial Rye coupon

    The 60 coupon is shown here and just changed to coupon to Free Rye.


    Pretty much the only thing I do is Bush and Bed, very little Landscape Installation, Mowing and Cleanups. Everything else we sub out.

    I actually like the other ones better! lol
    The ones with the house on them. Only because I've had great success with a similar card. This one does look great though.

    I do the same, having them placed in between the door jam, using 4X6 postcards. Aiming for 100K next year, starting the 3rd week in Feb.
