    I dont think it looks bad at all.

    I would change raking to leaf removal. I think you will have enough space to add this without it effecting the logo. I also like the fine print too. Thats on alot of the big chain coupon.

    Overall I think you've done fine.

    Not bad.

    I think the top part in black print is too "wordy". Simplify it a little.

    People could care less about your intro paragraph, drop it. Move your coupon to the top and make it bigger. Don't bother listing your services because you don't have any-- not trying to sound mean, just that everyone mow trims and blows, and customers just assume you can do other stuff.

    Do the leaf clean-up as another flyer in the fall with a coupon again.

    Keep It Simple,
    1: Coupon
    2: Name
    3: Phone #

    ok so you think i should get rid of the etc. what should i put there instead?...i was thinking at first maybe like: tired of having to do the things you dont want to do, do you want to spend more quality time with your family, or something YOU want to do? why not start with leaving your lawn to us!....so what do you think about that?...

    Get rid of the words in Black. Replace those by moving your logo up top and centered. Center the words in green. Center coupon and make a little bigger. Leave the bottom 1/3 as is.

    thanks for the opinion but i had a flyer like that and there were a lot of people telling me not to have my header as my name to have a paragraph or a catchy fraze and so far i have had the best responses with this one the way it is but with a few minor details so thanks for the thought but im not sure i will use it...but thanks anyway's

    You are correct on this.

    You have several shades of green some of which are not complementary. Make sure the green colors work together or just pick one and go with it.

    this is what I ment using what you had, just making it to the point and cheaper to do as you get 2 to every page.
